Example text

A related but poorly understood disorder of movement has been termed the alien hand. In the absence of volition, the hand and arm undertake complex and seemingly purposeful movements such as reaching into a pocket or handbag, placing the hand behind the head, and tugging on the opposite hand or other body part, and these activities may occur even during sleep. The patient has the sense that the actions are beyond his control, and there is often an impression that the hand is estranged as if controlled by an external agent (although the limb is recognized as one's own—there is no anosognosia); a grasp reflex and a tendency to grope are usually added.

Direct descending pathways from the basal ganglia to the spinal cord are relatively insignificant. The foregoing view of basal ganglionic organization has been broadened considerably, the result of new anatomic, physiologic, and pharmacologic data (see in particular the reviews of Alexander and Crutcher, of DeLong, and of Penney and Young). Whereas earlier concepts emphasized the serial connectivity of the basal ganglionic structures and the funneling of efferent projections to the ventrolateral thalamus and then to the motor cortex, current evidence indicates an organization into several parallel basal ganglionic–cortical circuits.

As a consequence, thalamocortical drive is enhanced and cortically initiated movements are facilitated. The indirect circuit arises from putaminal neurons that contain gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and smaller amounts of enkephalin. These striatal projections have an inhibitory effect on the lateral pallidum, which, in turn, disinhibits the subthalamic nucleus through GABA release, providing excessive subthalamic drive to the medial pallidum and substantia nigra pars reticulata. The net effect is thalamic inhibition and reduced thalamocortical input to the precentral motor fields.
