OBJECT The subthalamic nucleus (STN) is a key structure for motor control through the basal ganglia. The aim of this study was to show that the STN in patients with Parkinson disease (PD) has a somatotopic organization similar to that in nonhuman primates. METHODS A functional map of the STN was obtained using electrophysiological microrecording during… CONTINUE READING
