    Upper (left to right): Artistic representation of ventral intermediate nucleus (Vim) SRS-T; structural MRI alterations within Brodmann area (BA) 19 and also within BA 18, as depicted by structural (voxel-based morphometry) studies by our group; rs-fMRI changes, using different methodologies, such as independent component analysis and seed-to-voxel analysis. Lower: Artistic illustration (left) of the eye-hand coordination necessary for sensory guidance of movements, as a new concept for tremor generation in ET. Artistic illustration (right) suggesting the extrastriate cortex as a new potential target for the treatment of drug-resistant ET. Figure is available in color online only.
