    Abstract:
    Glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) activity was measured in the nuclei of the basal ganglia in patients with neuroleptic-induced tardive dyskinesia (TD) and controls matched for age and premortem state. In five TD patients, who all had a sudden death, a significant decrease in GAD activity was found in the subthalamic nucleus (STN). The lowered GAD activity in the STN may represent a biochemical substrate for neuroleptic-induced TD.
