Role of the human rostral supplementary motor area and the basal ganglia in motor sequence control: investigations with H2 15O PET.

Abstract:

The aim of this study was to investigate the functional anatomy of distributed cortical and subcortical motor areas in the human brain that participate in the central control of overlearned complex sequential unimanual finger movements. On the basis of previous research in nonhuman primates, a principal involvement of basal ganglia medial premotor loops [corrected] was predicted for central control of finger sequences performed automatically. In pertinent areas, a correlation of activation le...
