Taira, T. Ochiai, S. Goto, and T. Hori Department of Neurosurgery, Neurological Institute, Tokyo Women’s Medical University, Tokyo, Japan Summary Dystonia have many subtypes, and is classiﬁed as focal, segmental and generalized.
Thus movement disorders, especially dystonia, seem to be closely related with psychiatric or mental conditions. Dystonia is regarded as an expression of dysfunction of the thalamo-cortical-basal ganglia motor loop, but there are many other loop circuits in the brain and dysfunction of some of these loops are responsible for psychiatric disorders such as depression and obsessive disorders. The motor and mental functions of the brain are basically the output (efferent) system. Therefore, as there are many motor disorders as shown in Table 1, there must be corresponding psychiatric disorders such as mental tremor, mental dystonia, mental spasticity, mental dyskinesia, and so on.
For microelectrode navigation Lead point uses the microTargeting drive by Frederick Haer & Co. From a nonacademic user point of view, the system is a very good choice because it is compact, easy to use, has good quality of recording=ampliﬁcation, and is less expensive than its competitors. Another advantage of Lead point is its potential integration with frameless navigation systems that may effectively eliminate the need for multiple instrumentation racks in an already crowded operating room .
