Jerrold L. Vitek mainly focuses on Deep brain stimulation, Neuroscience, Subthalamic nucleus, Parkinson's disease and Stimulation. His study in Deep brain stimulation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Stereotaxic technique, Neuroanatomy, Neuroimaging and Neurostimulation. His work investigates the relationship between Neuroscience and topics such as Movement disorders that intersect with problems in Essential tremor.
His work in Subthalamic nucleus addresses subjects such as Biomedical engineering, which are connected to disciplines such as Magnetic resonance imaging. His work deals with themes such as Forced exercise and Surgery, which intersect with Parkinson's disease. Jerrold L. Vitek has included themes like Unified Parkinson's disease rating scale and Working memory in his Stimulation study.
His main research concerns Deep brain stimulation, Neuroscience, Parkinson's disease, Subthalamic nucleus and Globus pallidus. The various areas that Jerrold L. Vitek examines in his Deep brain stimulation study include Dystonia, Essential tremor, Physical therapy and Movement disorders. His is involved in several facets of Neuroscience study, as is seen by his studies on Stimulation, Basal ganglia, Premovement neuronal activity, Thalamus and MPTP.
His research in the fields of Neuromodulation overlaps with other disciplines such as Chemistry. Jerrold L. Vitek focuses mostly in the field of Parkinson's disease, narrowing it down to topics relating to Surgery and, in certain cases, Anesthesia and Severity of illness. His Subthalamic nucleus research incorporates themes from Magnetic resonance imaging, Primary motor cortex, Visualization, Local field potential and Biomedical engineering.
