    Curr Opin Neurobiol 20:704-16. 2010
    ..Results from these studies also add to the problems that confront theories positing that the BG selects movement, inhibits unwanted motor responses, corrects errors on-line, or stores and produces well-learned motor skills...

  1. DBS AND MOTOR CORTICAL FUNCTION IN AN MPTP MODEL OF PD
    Robert Turner; Fiscal Year: 2006
    ..Ultimately, these studies will advance a more complete pathophysiologic model of PD by incorporating the full array of parkinsonian symptoms. ..
  2. MOTOR SEQUENCES AND FRONTAL/BASAL GANGLIA MOTOR CIRCUITS
    Robert Turner; Fiscal Year: 2002
    ..It is hypothesized that pallidotomy will slow or eliminate the development of sequence-related neural discharge, whereas discharge related to overlearned motor sequences will remain unchanged. ..
