Motor regulation pertaining to stopping when necessary is impaired in Parkinson disease (PD) and is modulated by deep brain stimulation (DBS) therapy. We performed fMRI study at 3T using a stop-signal task with PD patients having implanted DBS, and investigated differences in activation in networks responsible for stopping between on and off states of DBS. Overall, larger and stronger activation was observed in this preliminary study when the DBS was turned on for go (when the subject is supposed to press button) minus baseline and successful stop (when the subject successfully stopped) minus go contrasts.
