Deep brain stimulation within the central thalamus (CT-DBS) has been proposed as a therapeutic strategy to improve arousal regulation and cognitive impairments in patients with severe brain injury. We hypothesized that fiber pathways in the central thalamus have a specific orientation, projecting to the cortex and striatum, which are robustly activated with stimulation configurations that facilitate behavioral performance and enhance cortical and striatal activity.
