We present a new intra-operative MRI technique for evaluating placement of DBS electrodes in patients with movement disorders, using simultaneous electrical stimulation and fMRI. This technique can elicit a strong BOLD effect whose pattern can reflect underlying networks. There is strong spatial sensitivity of these patterns to electrode position, which is important for clinical utility in predicting clinical response and unwanted side-effects.
