Abstract

Evoked potentials and elicited motor reactions (motor modulations) were studied within the motor system by aid of chronically implanted electrodes in patients suffering from movement disorders, epilepsy and intractable pain. The stimulation of different points (ventrolateral, ventroposteromedial, centrum medianum nuclei, globus pallidus, ipsilateral motor cortex, contralateral dentate nucleus) elicits a series of events represented by evoked potentials on the non-stimulated points of the studied structures and by motor reactions (motor modulations) in the actually contracted muscle (on the side of the dentate nucleus), and with appropriate parameters of stimuli in the resting muscle as well.
