We used a computational model to study the effect of deep brain stimulation on the spiking activity of a bursting subthalamic nucleus neuron, hypothesizing that the firing mode of the cell will have a major impact. Our simulations showed that the model exhibits a silent period at stimulation offset and frequency-dependent effects. Our results demonstrated a method of quantitatively assessing neuronal changes induced by DBS, to maximize therapeutic benefit and minimize unwanted side effects.
