BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Supplementary motor area (SMA) syndrome, an executive disorder with motor and speech dysfunctions, is rather unpredictable with typically a complete or almost complete functional recovery within weeks or months. Compensatory mechanisms are associated with contralateral cortical recruitment of the lateral premotor circuitry. We sought to investigate the role of healthy SMA for motor recovery following surgery in the medial frontal lobe. METHODS A 48-year-old right… CONTINUE READING
