Stimulators, Electrical, Brain, Tremor
Definition : Electrical brain stimulators that apply the stimuli to specific areas of the deep brain (e.g., thalamus) to help control tremors. Brain stimulators for tremor control consist of electrodes implanted in the brain using stereotactic surgery techniques and connected through leads to a pulse generator that is typically implanted near the collarbone. These stimulators are used to control several tremors, such as those in people suffering from essential tremor or tremors associated with Parkinson's disease.
