Abstract

PSMs may serve as a useful tool for defining the most efficacious anatomical location of stimulation. The best tremor control in this series of cZi DBS was achieved with stimulation of the superior part of the PSA, which corresponds to the final part of the cerebellothalamic projections before they reach the ventral lateral thalamus.
