Parkinsonian rigidity. Analysis and quantification of EMG for use in stereotactic neurosurgery in Parkinson's disease

23 November 2009

The thesis focuses on the development of a method for quantification of rigidity in parkinsonian patients undergoing stereotactic neurosurgery. It is concluded that both the EMG amplitude in the lengthening phase of the muscle and the interburst minimum in the lengthening phase can be used for quantification of parkinsonian rigidity and seem to be applicable for intra-operative neuromonitoring of stereotactic neurosurgical interventions in parkinsonian patients.
