The striatal decrease of dopamine increased the extracelular glutamate pool. The glutamatergic thalamo-striatal pathway degenerated with the striatal increase of glutamate. Present data in rats suggest that glutamatergic hyperactivity in the striatum could be the cause of a retrograde degeneration of the intralaminar thalamic nuclei in Parkinson's disease.
