In true hemiplegia, no added pressure will be felt by the hand that remained beneath the heel of the paralyzed leg. In hysteria, the heel of the supposedly paralyzed leg will press down on the examiner's hand. To carry out Babinski's trunk-thigh test, the examiner asks the recumbent patient to sit up while keeping his arms crossed in front of his chest. In the patient with organic hemiplegia, there is an involuntary flexion of the paretic lower limb; in paraplegia, both limbs are flexed as the trunk is flexed; in hysterical hemiplegia, only the normal leg may be flexed; and in hysterical paraplegia, neither leg is flexed.
It has been proposed—on the basis of physiologic, lesional, and pharmacologic studies—that there are two main efferent projections from the putamen, but these models, being quite incomplete, should be viewed as provisional. Nonetheless, there are reasons to conceptualize a direct efferent system from the putamen onto the medial (internal) pallidum and then onto the substantia nigra, particularly the nonpigmented (pars reticulata) cells, and an indirect system that traverses the lateral (external) pallidum and continues on to the subthalamic nucleus, with which it has strong to-and-fro connections.
4-3). This concept was based largely on the seminal experimental work of Whittier and Mettler and of Carpenter, in the late 1940s. These investigators demonstrated, in monkeys, that a characteristic movement disorder, which they termed choreoid dyskinesia, could be produced consistently in the limbs of one side of the body by a lesion localized to the opposite subthalamic nucleus. They also showed that for such a lesion to provoke dyskinesia, the adjacent pallidum and pallidofugal fibers had to be preserved; furthermore, a secondary lesion—placed in the medial segment of the pallidum, in the fasciculus lenticularis, or in the ventrolateral thalamic nuclear group—could abolish the dyskinesia.
