Dopamine loss in Parkinson's disease (PD) is associated with abnormal oscillatory activity in the cortico-basal ganglia network. However, the oscillatory pattern of striatal neurons in PD remains poorly defined. Here, we analyzed the local field potentials in one untreated and five MPTP-treated non-human primates (NHP) with chronic, advanced parkinsonism. Oscillatory activities in the alpha (8-13 Hz) and low-beta (13-20 Hz) frequency bands were found in the striatum similarly to the motor cortex and globus pallidus of the NHP model of PD. Both alpha and low-beta frequency band oscillations of the striatum were highly coherent with the cortical and pallidal oscillations, confirming the presence of abnormal 8-20 Hz oscillatory activity in the cortico-basal ganglia network in parkinsonian NHPs. The reversal of parkinsonism induced by acute levodopa administration was associated with reduced 8-20 Hz oscillations in the striatum. These findings indicate that pathological oscillations at alpha and low-beta bands are also present in the striatum concordant with basal ganglia network changes in the primate model of PD.
