Here we seek to establish whether there are activities in the human pallidum that may predict a specific aspect of performance, timing. When recording from two patients with Parkinson's disease and primary generalised dystonia following functional neurosurgery we found that the amplitude of oscillatory pallidal activity occurring prior to the completion of a bimanual timing task was strongly correlated with eventual task duration. The frequency of this oscillatory activity was around 25 Hz. W...Expand abstract
