Part of the Advances and Technical Standards in Neurosurgery book series (NEUROSURGERY, volume 25)


The surgical treatment of movement disorders has evolved continuously over the course of the twentieth century, not only because of technical progress in neurosurgery but also because of improved recognition of the signs and symptoms of these disorders, and because of a progressive refinement of surgical indications, based on a better understanding of the relevant neuroanatomy and pathophysiology.
