Video S1. This segment shows the patient in 2000, six months after left STN electrode implantation, in the DBS “off” state. There is bilateral upper limb rest, postural and kinetic tremor, and bradykinesia.
Video S2. Marked improvement on the right side rest and postural tremor is observed with the DBS “on,” with only mild improvement in the right-side bradykinesia.
Video S3. This segment shows the patient in 2008, two years after implantation of the right STN DBS in the “off” state. There is a high-amplitude left-hand tremor, with bilateral bradykinesia, more prominent on the left side; motor examination is interfered by the tremor.
Video S4. This segment shows the patient with the right STN “on” with minimal improvement in his left-side tremor, without changes in left bradykinesia.
