New SEM study out: “Relating pallidal theta activity to dystonic symptoms and anatomy of the GPi”

In a new study (A localized pallidal physiomarker in cervical dystonia) led by Wolf-Julian Neumann with Siobhan Ewert, Julius Huebl, Christof Brücke, Gerd-Helge Schneider and Andrea A Kühn, we were able to relate pallidal theta power to dystonic symptom severity for the first time. Furthermore, using the “Subcortical Electrophysiology Mapping (SEM)” approach developed as part of Lead-DBS (implemented inside the “Lead Group” module), […]

VTA-model support for segmented Leads

Till Dembek created a segmented Lead Mesh that allows us to run our FEM-calculations (see Connectivity Predicts deep brain stimulation outcome in Park…; model implemented based on SimBio with great help from Johannes Vorwerk) to create VTAs for these electrodes.

Lead-DBS 2.0 out now

We are proud to release Lead-DBS 2.0 to the community – an open source tool to localize Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) electrodes in the human brain. A detailed description of all major new features is available here [http://www.lead-dbs.org/?p=3174], but in a nutshell they are: DISTAL atlas: A detailed brain atlas of the human subcortex based on histology […]
