This chapter describes the neuroanatomy and neurotransmitters of frontal-subcortical circuits and the clinical behavioral syndromes associated with the specific focal lesions within the circuits. It reviews the neuropsychological and behavioral consequences of posterior pallidotomy and of deep-brain stimulation in the pallidum and subthalamic nucleus in patients with Parkinson's disease. Thus, both “naturally occurring” and intentional lesions or interruption of the circuit are considered.

Keywords:   neuroanatomy, neurotransmitters, Parkinson's disease, frontal subcortical circuits
