Experimental: Deep Brain Stimulation
Parkinson's patients with deep brain stimulation in the subthalamic nucleus.
Procedure: Stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus
Stimulation is delivered to the subthalamic nucleus at experimentally prescribed settings.
- behavioral task performance [ Time Frame: 1 to 2 hours ]Participants will complete behavioral tasks at each of three visits to assess the effects of stimulation settings on task performance. At each research visit, behavior will be assessed beginning at 1 hour after the stimulation is adjusted to the experimental settings. Stimulation settings will be returned to each patient's treatment levels at the culmination of each visit.
