Microelectrode Recording Globus Pallidum

3.1 Overview of Microelectrode Recording Since its introduction by Albe-Fessard and Guiot 22 in the early 1960s, microelectrode recording MER has been performed in the human thalamus during surgery for parkinsonism and other movement disorders 23-33 . There is now a growing literature on microelectrode recording in the human GPi 34-41 and the human STN 42 . The most common technique is recording of single-unit, extracellular action potentials using high impedence 0.1-1.0 Mohm at 1000 Hz...
