The aim of this work was to study the role of subthalamo-pallidal synchronisation in the pathophysiology of dyskinesias. We recorded local field potentials (LFPs) in a patient with Parkinson's disease and left surgery induced dyskinesias with double, bilateral deep brain stimulation electrode implants in the subthalamic nucleus (STN) and the globus pallidus internus [GPi). Synchronisation was studied through coherence analysis. In the nuclei contralateral to the dyskinetic side of the body there was decreased STN-GPi coherence in the high beta range (20-30 Hz) and an enhanced coherence at low frequencies (
