Orofacial dyskinesia (OFD) is a disorder characterized by involuntary movements of the oral and facial muscles. OFD attacks can be elicited acutely in cats by local injections of dopaminergic agents into the anterodorsal part (r-CRM) of the caudate nucleus. Because the dopaminergic A8 cell group, being embedded in the retrorubral nucleus (RRN), gives rise to fibres which terminate in the r-CRM, two questions arose: (1) whether the A8 cell group forms part of the circuitry that directs and/or… CONTINUE READING
