Answer

Answer

Basal ganglia play an important role in sequencing motor behavior and modulating muscular tone. External stimuli can produce improvement in sequencing and performance and probably account for kinesia paradoxica (ie, temporary return of mobility in a patient with parkinsonism under the influence of an appropriate external periodic keying stimulus) and gait amelioration.
