This chapter summarizes techniques used for the placement of deep brain stimulation (DBS) electrodes. These procedures are performed primarily for the treatment of movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, and dystonia. We describe radiologic atlas-based targeting using computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, physiological localization using microelectrode recordings, and macrostimulation techniques. We summarize the standard intraoperative surgical and mapping procedures used to localize the ventral intermediate nucleus of the thalamus (Vim), sub thalamic nucleus (STN), and globus pallidus pars interna (GPi).
