    PLoS ONE 7:e31654. 2012
    ..While studies in animal models support a role for this circuitry in the pathophysiology of the movement disorder dystonia, thus far, there is only indirect evidence for this in humans with dystonia...

    A J Blood
    Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 98:11818-23. 2001
    ..This finding links music with biologically relevant, survival-related stimuli via their common recruitment of brain circuitry involved in pleasure and reward...

    Anne J Blood
    Department of Neurology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Charlestown, MA 02129, USA
    Ann Neurol 55:744-8. 2004
    ..We posit that inhibitory control of the basal ganglia may be faulty in focal hand dystonia, and that the increases we observe in "resting" activity may mask basal ganglia abnormalities in standard imaging contrast analyses...
