Abstract

Bursting activity in cells cross-correlated with electromyographic (EMG) activity during parkinsonian tremor. Statistically significant evidence of cross-correlation was found for 49% of cells located at the lesion target for relief of tremor. Statistically significant correlation was found for 90% of cells having tremor frequency power greater than twice ‘average power’ at nontremor frequencies. This population of cells may be involved in the generation of parkinsonian tremor.
