Invasive Approach to Model Human Cortex-Basal Ganglia Action-Regulating Networks
UCLA IRB #: 16-001516
Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Time Frame: Up to 40 minutes during surgery
Purpose: Action regulation and suppression are key parts of everyday behavior. In this study, we explore the action suppression during selection, conflict and stopping. We take advantage of deep brain stimulation surgery for Parkinson’s disease, to obtain cortical and BG recordings across 3 action suppression tasks (self-paced movement, Eriksen Flanker task, and stop signal).
