Impairment of righting reflexes is one of the cardinal features of basal ganglia disease. Although the precise anatomical organization of these reflexes in man is not fully understood, neurophysiological experiments suggest an important role for the striatum (i.e. caudate nucleus and putamen), pallidum, the supplementary motor area (SMA) and the motor and sensory cortices in righting reactions (see chapter 1-3).
