Our animal studies suggest that the basal ganglia provide an internal non-specific cue to trigger movement and imply that Parkinson's disease involves a deficiency in this cueing mechanism. Indeed parkinsonian patients typically rely upon external visual cues. To assess the effects of such non-specific cueing mechanisms on movement, we examined patients' utilization of a variety of auditory cues. Ten patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, and their matched controls, pressed buttons at a… CONTINUE READING
