Apathy has been reported to occur after subthalamic nucleus stimulation (STN-DBS), a treatment of motor complications in advanced Parkinson's disease (PD). It is not known whether postoperative apathy is related to dopamine withdrawal or a side effect of STN DBS. The researchers investigated potential predictors of apathy, and the effect of dopamine agonist treatment.
