This text explores the history of pallidal surgery, and explains the basic anatomy and physiology behind it. Patient selection, technical aspects, and clinical results and evaluation are all explained. The contributors also consider treatment modalities (pallidotomy, pallidal deep brain stimulation, and pallidal radiosurgery), and three points of view on the controversy surrounding the optimal target in pallidotomy.
