Relationships between the localization of the most effectively stimulated contacts and the UPDRS motor score of items 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 as akinesia. The best improvement of akinesia was achieved in 10 cases by bilateral deep brain stimulation of each paired combination among the subthalamic nucleus, zona incerta, and field of Forel H and in one case by contralateral stimulation of the zona incerta. Pre: before surgery, post: after surgery, STN: subthalamic nucleus, ZI: zona incerta, FH: field of Forel H. and number: case number.
