Objective: The hypothalamus is an essential interface among neuroendocrine, autonomic and somatomotor systems, allowing dynamic bodily adaptations to environmental cues via the orchestration of complex physiological processes.
Progressive alterations of dopaminergic (DAergic) neurons in the nigrostriatal pathway are at the core of the abovementioned motor symptoms, resulting in a dysfunction of the somatomotor system.

Comparison of the two fMRI scans revealed that certain areas of the brain--the contralateral supplementary motor area, somatosensory cortex, ipsilateral somatomotor cortex, and the precuneus bilateral insula--were activated in the first phase of the study when levels of pain were high.
The Pubococcygeus muscle (Pc) is located in the pelvic floor of both males and females, and it is innervated by the somatomotor branch of the pelvic nerve, which originates between the sixth lumbar and the first sacral segments of the spinal cord in rats.
