Abstract

The pedunculopontine nucleus, a promising new target for deep brain stimulation in Parkinson's disease, straddles the pontomesencephalic junction - unfamiliar territory to most functional neurosurgeons. This contribution reviews the anatomy of the pedunculoportine and peripecluncular nuclei. Given the reported findings of Mazzone et al. in NeuroReport, the authors postulate that the peripecluncular nucleus might be of previously unexpected clinical relevance.
