Loss of neuronal specificity in the basal ganglia (BG) has been reported In Parkinson’s disease (PD). However, loss of specificity has not been characterized using non-invasive methods in PD. We proposed an innovative method to characterize the functional specificity of BG. We tested the hypothesis that loss of specificity may result in larger spatial extent of overlap between anatomo-functional territories in the BG. We performed population statistics to compare the extent of overlap between PD subjects and controls. As expected, the motor territories had larger extent of overlap in PD subject than in controls revealing a loss of specificity of the BG in PD.
