We are excited to announce that Nanditha Rajamani received this year’s poster prize at the DBS expert summit and Lukas Goede the one at the German Society for Neuroscience Congress 2022 in Würzburg!

Nanditha’s Poster, entitled “Analysing Symptom-specific tractography in Parkinson’s Disease” investigated structural networks associated with optimal clinical improvements of specific symptoms in patients with Parkinson’s Disease that underwent subthalamic deep brain stimulation.

Lukas Poster, entitled “DBS for tremor: Network Effects” investigated functional network profiles associated with optimal improvement of tremor in both subthalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson’s Disease and thalamic DBS (to the ventrointermediate nucleus) for Essential Tremor.

Lukas could show that the same distributed brain network, involving modulation of primary motor cortex and cerebellum, was associated with optimal tremor control across the two DBS sites and diseases.
