We studied tremor-related activity in globus pallidus internus (GPi) neurons and the effects of pallidotomy on tremor in patients with Parkinson's disease. By using microelectrode recording, we identified GPi neurons with rhythmic firing at the frequency of contralateral tremor. There was a strong correlation between the tremor-related neuronal activity and limb tremor (r = 0.73). The majority of tremor-related neurons were located in the ventral one half of the caudal GPi, the area that is the… CONTINUE READING
