These projections are directed to separate targets in the ventrolateral nucleus of the thalamus and to a lesser extent in the ventral anterior and intralaminar thalamic nuclei. The centromedian nucleus of the intralaminar group projects back to the putamen and, via the parafascicular nucleus, to the caudate. A major projection from the ventral thalamic nuclei to the ipsilateral premotor cortex completes the large cortical-striatal-pallidal-thalamic-cortical motor loop—(the prepyramidal circuit, mentioned above)—with conservation of the somatotopic arrangement of motor fibers.
The close association of these two systems also becomes evident in the course of neurologic disease. Cerebral lesions that involve the corticospinal tracts predominantly result not only in a contralateral paralysis of volitional movements but also in a fixed posture or attitude in which the arm is flexed and the leg extended (predilection type of Wernicke-Mann or hemiplegic dystonia of Denny-Brown). As noted in Chap. 3, interruption of the motor projection pathways by a lesion in the upper pons or midbrain may release another posture in which all four limbs or the arm and leg on one side are extended and the cervical and thoracolumbar portions of the spine are hyperextended ( decerebrate rigidity).
Testing for apraxia is carried out in several ways. First, one observes the actions of the patient as he engages in such tasks as dressing, washing, shaving, and using eating utensils. Second, the patient is asked to carry out familiar symbolic acts—wave good-bye, shake his fist as though angry, salute, or blow a kiss. Third, if he fails, he is asked to imitate such acts made by the examiner. Finally, he is asked to show how he would hammer a nail, brush his teeth, comb his hair, cross himself, and so forth, or to execute a more complex act, such as lighting and smoking a cigarette or opening a bottle of soda, pouring some into a glass, and drinking it.
