Coordinated reset neuromodulation consists of the application of consecutive
brief high-frequency pulse trains through the different contacts of the
stimulation electrode. In theoretical studies, by achieving unlearning of
abnormal connectivity between neurons, coordinated reset neuromodulation reduces
pathological synchronization, a hallmark feature of Parkinson’s disease
pathophysiology. Here we show that coordinated reset neuromodulation of the
subthalamic nucleus has both acute and sustained long-lasting aftereffects on
motor function in parkinsonian nonhuman primates. Long-lasting aftereffects were
not observed with classical deep brain stimulation. These observations encourage
further development of coordinated reset neuromodulation for treating motor
symptoms in Parkinson disease patients.
