    That area of the brain controls voluntary movement. Some kind of injury, like a lesion, would cause twitching, shaking, and other problems dealing with involuntary muscle contraction. This kind of injury could play a role in the development of Dystonia: http://jnnp.bmj.com/content/69/4/494.abstract http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dystonia ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Why ask, if you already knew?
