Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by a range of motor and non-motor symptoms. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an established treatment for the management of these symptoms in PD and related conditions. Over the last decade there has been growing interest and important developments in the potential of DBS to improve quality of life. These advances have been fostered by improvements in the research techniques that enable us to gather insights from different approaches.

In this Research Topic, Frontiers is looking to address key aspects of the use of DBS in order to facilitate knowledge dissemination and fully discover the potential of DBS to treat PD and related conditions. In this Research Topic, we encourage researchers to summarize the state of the art and the main challenges in the use of DBS. We also welcome contributions that look into the future and define the directions that the field will take. What have been the key discoveries so far? What are the most pressing matters that need to be addressed? Where is the DBS going to take us in the coming years?

We particularly welcome submission of Original Research, Review, Methods, Case, and Perspective articles on the following sub-topics:
• Application of advanced imaging methods (7T-MRI, MR-PET, etc.) in accurate preoperative localization of DBS.
• DBS in the treatment of neuropsychiatric diseases and movement disorders.
• Short- and Long-term effects of DBS on the therapeutic responses and on the cognitive status.

Keywords: deep brain stimulation, Parkinson's disease, gait, dyskinesia, akinesia


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
