The video depicts the medication off state (0:00–0:41 min) and the medication on state (0:42–1:03 min) before STN DBS, followed by the medication on/STN DBS on state after 1 year of STN DBS (1:04–1:48 min). Next is, after 8 years STN DBS, the medication off/STN DBS on state (1:49–2:05 min) and the medication on/STN DBS on state (2:06–2:48 min) and, finally, the medication on/STN plus GPi DBS on state after 3 months of additional GPi DBS (2:49–3:35 min) (MPG 36,821 kb)
