Unilateral and bilateral pallidotomy for idiopathic Parkinson's disease: A case series of 115 patients
Lesioning of the internal pallidum is known to improve the symptoms of idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) and alleviate dyskinesia and motor fluctuations related to levodopa therapy. The benefitExpand

A Randomized Controlled Trial of Cyclosporine Withdrawal in Renal-Transplant Recipients: 15-Year Results
Background. In renal transplantation, the immunosuppressive efficacy of cyclosporine is counterbalanced by its nephrotoxicity. Although cyclosporine improves short-term graft survival, its long-termExpand

Redefining functional models of basal ganglia organization: Role for the posteroventral pallidum in linguistic processing?
Traditionally the basal ganglia have been implicated in motor behavior, as they are involved in both the execution of automatic actions and the modification of ongoing actions in novel contexts.Expand

Beyond verbal fluency: Investigating the long-term effects of bilateral subthalamic (STN) deep brain stimulation (DBS) on language function in two cases
Cognitive functioning has been described as largely impervious to chronic STN-DBS administered over 12-month periods. In relation to the domain of language, however, the effects of STN-DBS are yet toExpand

Re-appraising Contemporary Theories of Subcortical Participation in Language: Proposing an Interhemispheric Regulatory Function for the Subthalamic Nucleus (STN) in the Mediation of High-level
Abstract Apropos the basal ganglia, the dominant striatum and globus pallidus internus (GPi) have been hypothesized to represent integral components of subcortical language circuitry. WorkingExpand

Reappraising Contemporary Theories of Subcortical Participation in Language: Proposing an Interhemispheric Regulatory Function for the Subthalamic Nucleus (STN) in the Mediation of High-Level
Apropos the basal ganglia, the dominant striatum and globus pallidus internus (GPi) have been hypothesised to represent integral components of subcortical language circuitry. Working subcorticalExpand

Borrowing from models of motor control to translate cognitive processes: Evidence for hypokinetic–hyperkinetic linguistic homologues?
In relation to motor control, the basal ganglia have been implicated in both the scaling and focusing of movement. Hypokinetic and hyperkinetic movement disorders manifest as a consequence ofExpand

Constraints on Resultative and Depictive Modification
According to Halliday (1967), there is a ban on simultaneous resultative and depictive modification in English. It is here observed that such a ban is not general, but instead restricted to certainExpand
