Topography of movement-related cortical potentials is abnormal in Parkinson's disease

Brain Research

We studied the scalp-recorded, movement-related cortical potentials occurring immediately before and after the onset of movement in 5 patients with asymmetric Parkinson's disease. The topographic distribution of the initial slope of motor potential (isMP) was diffuse for voluntary finger movements of the more affected hand but normal for movements of the less affected hand. The frontal peak of motor potential (fpMP) was located more posterior in patients than in normal subjects. The peak amplitudes of the potentials were normal in all patients. The topographic abnormalities might reflect inadequate excitatory activity from the basal ganglia to the primary motor cortex and the supplementary motor area.

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.

Basal ganglia in Parkinson's disease (MDS)

The basal ganglia is comprised of the neostriatum, the external and internal pallidal segments, the subthalamic nucleus, the substantia nigra pars reticulata, and the pars compacta of the substantia nigra. The basal ganglia circuitry is responsible for the correct execution of voluntary movements and is implicated in Parkinson's disease. Here is the latest research investigating the basal ganglia in Parkinson's disease.
