Objective: The corticospinal tract is in proximity of the classical targets for Deep Brain Stimulation (e.g. STN, VIM and GPi). Stimulation of the tract causes side effects that interfere with the therapeutic effect of stimulation. Therefore an accurate visualisation of this anatomical structure might[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
