Cortical dynamics and connectivity in essential tremor
- Essential tremor (ET) is associated with reduced power across feedback in the motor cortex and a reduction in connectivity between the parietal cortex and the motor cortex.
Why this matters
This study, along with previous work, suggests that ET is associated with changes in a widespread network of nodes and not one key region of the brain, suggesting multiple treatment targets.
