OBJECTIVE It has been suggested that the basal ganglia act to release cortical elements from idling (alpha) rhythms so that they may become coherent in the gamma range, thereby binding together those distributed activities necessary for the effective selection and execution of a motor act. This hypothesis was tested in 10 patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease. METHODS Surface EEG was recorded during self paced squeezing of the hand and elbow flexion performed separately, simultaneously… CONTINUE READING
