Neurons in the parafascicular thalamus project to three different parts of the basal ganglia. Targeting these circuits could be a new target for treating motor dysfunction and depression associated with Parkinson's disease.
A new computer model shows the beneficial effects of deep brain stimulation arise from how it interrupts the cycle promoting runway beta in a circuit loop between the subthalamic nucleus and striatum.
Researchers have identified a novel, pain sensing network that links the subthalamic nucleus to a pain processing network in mouse models of Parkinson's disease.
Osaka University researchers reveal the brain region that makes us feel uneasy over unnatural android movements.
Researchers report low frequency deep brain stimulation can help to improve cognitive function in people with Parkinson's disease.
Abnormal activity involving the globus pallidus may be responsible for movement dysfunction in Parkinson's disease, a new study reports.
A new study reports the brain system involved in interrupting body movements also can put the breaks on our stream of thought.
