Stimulation of this direct pathway inhibits the medial pallidum, which, in turn, disinhibits the ventrolateral and ventroanterior nuclei of the thalamus. As a consequence, thalamocortical drive is enhanced and cortically initiated movements are facilitated. The indirect circuit arises from putaminal neurons that contain gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and smaller amounts of enkephalin. These striatal projections have an inhibitory effect on the lateral pallidum, which, in turn, disinhibits the subthalamic nucleus through GABA release, providing excessive subthalamic drive to the medial pallidum and substantia nigra pars reticulata.
Some motor function may be retained, as in the case described by Ropper and coworkers; interestingly, in this case and in three others previously reported, there was considerable recovery of voluntary power even though the pyramid was almost completely destroyed. Rarely, an ipsilateral hemiplegia may be caused by a lesion in the lateral column of the cervical spinal cord. In this location, however, the pathologic process more often induces bilateral signs, with resulting quadriparesis or quadriplegia.
