One of the efficient methods in controlling the Parkinson's tremor is Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) therapy. The stimulation of Basal Ganglia (BG) by DBS brings no feedback though the existence of feedback reduces the additional stimulatory signal delivered to the brain. So this study offers a new adaptive architecture of a closed-loop control system in which two areas of BG are stimulated simultaneously to decrease the following three indicators: hand tremor, the level of a delivered stimulation signal in the disease condition, and the level of a delivered stimulation signal in health condition to the disease condition. One area (STN: subthalamic nucleus) is stimulated with an adaptive sliding mode controller and the other area (GPi: Globus Pallidus internal) with partial state feedback controller. The simulation results of stimulating two areas of BG showed satisfactory performance.

Abstract

One of the efficient methods in controlling the Parkinson's tremor is Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) therapy. The stimulation of Basal Ganglia (BG) by DBS brings no feedback though the existence of feedback reduces the additional stimulatory signal delivered to the brain. So this study offers a new adaptive architecture of a closed-loop control system in which two areas of BG are stimulated simultaneously to decrease the following three indicators: hand tremor, the level of a delivered stimulation signal in the disease condition, and the level of a delivered stimulation signal in health condition to the disease condition. One area (STN: subthalamic nucleus) is stimulated with an adaptive sliding mode controller and the other area (GPi: Globus Pallidus internal) with partial state feedback controller. The simulation results of stimulating two areas of BG showed satisfactory performance.
