My primary research interest and practice are in Deep Brain Stimulation for Movement Disorders. Currently, we are involved in research to investigate how cortico-spinal reflex changes under the influence of parkinson medication and DBS in Parkinson's patients. We also use a computer-based tool to assess patients' decision making in DBS for Parkinson's disease and analyze the outcomes.
Since gait difficulties are one of the most debilitating symptoms in Parkinson's disease, I am also looking into the imaging biomarkers for gait difficulties and to look into the structural changes that can predict the response to treatment interventions.
Other research I am involved includes new drug trials for Parkinson's patients with significant motor fluctuations.
