A patient with thalamic stroke underwent microelectrode-guided stereotactic thalamic exploration during surgery for control of tremor. The results of somatic sensory mapping in this patient were compared with explorations carried out during stereotactic surgery for the control of essential tremor (70 patients). There was evidence both of somatotopic reorganization and of anatomic reorganization of the representation of deep structures in the principal somatic sensory nucleus of the thalamus and… CONTINUE READING
