Abstract

Techniques for quantitatively describing the firing properties of neurons have been used to identify thalamic cells with a firing pattern which is correlated with EMG activity during tremor. By locating these cells relative to the anterior border of the somatosensory nucleus and the anterior commissure-posterior commissure line, it may be possible to select the optimal lesion site for the relief of parkinsonian tremor on a rational rather than an empirical basis.
