Positive feedback loops, such as the one involving PPN and the STN (labeled 2) and the pathway through CM and the putamen (labeled 1) will tend to aggravate or enhance the abnormali- ties of discharge in the basal ganglia output nuclei associated with movement disorders, such as PD, whereas negative feedback circuits, such as a feedback involving CM and STN (not shown) will act to normalize neuronal discharge in the basal ganglia output nuclei. It is worth noting that via the CM nucleus, activity changes in the indirect pathway may influence the activity along the direct pathway. Thus, increased STN output in parkinsonism, by an action via GPi and CM, may result in a reduction of activity along the direct pathway. The pathophysiology of early parkinsonism may differ FIGURE 122. Model of the proposed rate changes in the basal from that of late parkinsonism in several aspect. For in- ganglia–thalamocortical circuitry under normal (left) and parkin- stance, increased STN output in early parkinsonism may sonian conditions (right). In parkinsonism, dopaminergic neurons in the the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc) degenerate, have a compensatory function by increasing glutamatergic which results, via a cascade of changes in the other basal ganglia drive on SNc neurons. Thus, it has been shown that local nuclei, in increased basal ganglia output from GPi and SNr. This, injections of glutamate receptor blockers into the SNc sig- in turn, is thought to lead to inhibition of related thalamic and cortical neurons. In addition to the changes shown here, there nificantly worsen motor signs in early stages of MPTP- are prominent alterations in discharge patterns (see text). MPTP-treated primates reverse all of the cardinal signs of At the same time, increased glutamatergic drive onto surviv- parkinsonism, presumably by reducing GPi activity (16,30, ing SNc neurons may also be (excito-) toxic (239). Similarly, GPi and SNr inactivation have been shown The reciprocal changes in activity in the indirect and to be effective against at least some parkinsonian signs in direct pathways following dopamine depletion should both MPTP-treated primates (179,181,308,315). The 2-deoxyglucose proaches to the treatment of medically intractable PD. This studies mentioned above demonstrated increased (synaptic) was first employed in the form of GPi lesions (pallidotomy) activity in the VA and VL nucleus of thalamus (60,201, (19,85,169,183,276,301) and, more recently, with STN le- 252), presumably reflecting increased inhibitory basal gan- sions (108). In addition, high-frequency deep brain stimula- glia output to these nuclei. Consistent with this are positron tion (DBS) of both the STN and GPi have been shown to emission tomography (PET) studies in parkinsonian pa- reverse parkinsonian signs. The mechanism of action of tients that have consistently shown reduced activation of DBS remains controversial. It appears most likely, however, motor and premotor areas in such patients (42,48,54,88, that DBS and lesions act similarly in that both result in an 90), although no changes have been seen in the thalamus. Alterations of cortical activity in motor cortex and supple- PET studies in pallidotomy patients performing a motor mentary motor areas have also been demonstrated with sin- task have shown that frontal motor areas whose metabolic gle-cell recording in hemiparkinsonian primates (306). For instance, the movement-related output from the parkinsonian signs. DBS of the STN and GPi have revealed SNr appears to reach predominately premotor areas, and similar changes with PET, further supporting this concept could conceivably play a role in some aspects of akinesia as well as the belief that DBS appears to act functionally (141). In addition, the SNr carries a substantial portion of like ablation. Abnormal SNr The experience with inactivation or deep brain stimula- discharge may therefore be associated with some of the non- tion of the SNr is very limited at this point. There are no (limb)-motor abnormalities in parkinsonism, including oc- studies of the effects of (exclusive) lesioning of the SNr ulomotor disturbances as well as cognitive, behavioral, and available, and one case report on the effects of (inadvertent) emotional disturbances. This clearly needs further study, but it that lesions of this nucleus in normal monkeys can lead seems that the SNr may not be a feasible target for surgical to hemiakinesia, possibly by reducing stimulation of SNc interventions, because of its prominent involvement in non- neurons by input from the PPN, or by a direct influence on motor functions, and possibly also because of the greater descending pathways (51,146,162,206). It remains unclear, degree of overlap between the different functional territories however, whether the motor abnormalities seen after PPN in this nucleus (123,127,186). It is noteworthy that these animals do not manifest rigidity or tremor, which appear It has long been clear that the aforementioned models of to be critically dependent on thalamic circuitry (see below). Changes that arise in any portion of the complex mental features of the disease. Thus, although the results basal ganglia–thalamocortical circuitry will have significant of lesions in parkinsonism seem at first glance easily ex- consequences in all other areas of the network. This implies plained by the above-mentioned rate-based model of par- that the search for a parkinsonism-inducing 'source' of kinsonism, more detailed studies of the results of lesions in abnormalities in the neuronal activity within the network patients with parkinsonism have brought to light several may be futile, but suggests also that surgical or pharmaco- important findings that are not compatible with the models. This can indeed be appreciated when based models, lesions of the 'basal ganglia–receiving' areas considering the results of lesion studies in parkinsonian pri- of the thalamus (VA/VL) do not lead to parkinsonism and mates. One of the most important and dramatic in this in fact are beneficial in the treatment of both tremor and 1768 Neuropsychopharmacology: The Fifth Generation of Progress rigidity (45,109,220,290)). Similarly, lesions of GPi in the lesions suggest that in patients with PD and other move- setting of parkinsonism lead to improvement in all aspects ment disorders the absence of basal ganglia input to the still of PD without any obvious detrimental effects. Further- intact portions of the basal ganglia–thalamocortical net- more, they are, often in the same patient, effective against work is more tolerable than abnormal input. Near-normal both parkinsonism and drug-induced dyskinesias (217, motor function is still possible in these disorders once the 235). In contrast to the abnormalities seen in parkinsonism, abnormal basal ganglia–thalamocortical input is removed. Alterations in discharge patterns and (mRNA) for GAD67, one of the enzymes synthesizing - synchronization between neighboring neurons have been aminobutyric acid (GABA) in basal ganglia neurons. In con- extensively documented in parkinsonian monkeys and pa- trast to GAD itself, which is found in neuronal cell bodies tients. For instance, neuronal responses to passive limb ma- or terminals, the mRNA for the enzyme is thought to be nipulations in STN, GPi and thalamus (31,95,199,299) contained exclusively in cell bodies. In these studies the have been shown to occur more often, to be more pro- GAD mRNA activity in a given nucleus is therefore taken nounced, and to have widened receptive fields after treat- as a parameter for the level of activity of GABAergic neurons ment with MPTP. There is also a marked change in the in the nucleus under study. Experiments in parkinsonian synchronization of discharge between neurons in the basal primates have shown that, as expected from the above-men- ganglia. Cross-correlation studies have revealed that a sub- tioned model, GAD67 mRNA activity is increased in GPi stantial proportion of neighboring neurons in the globus neurons (131,132,269), and is reversed with levodopa ad- pallidus and STN discharge in unison in MPTP-treated ministration.

This is in contrast to the virtual absence of with parkinsonism, however, was found to be similar to that synchronized discharge of such neurons in normal monkeys in controls, possibly because these patients were chronically (309). Finally, the proportion of cells in STN, GPi, and treated with levodopa (131,132). Some of the findings re- SNr that discharge in oscillatory or nonoscillatory bursts is garding GAD mRNA in GPe, however, are at odds with the greatly increased in the parkinsonian state (31,94,199,300, above-mentioned model in which the activity of GABAergic 302,311).
