a: The basal ganglia ~
b: the brain’s switchboard

What: "Dyskinetic cerebral palsy results from damage to the basal ganglia of the brain. The basal ganglia is like the brain's switchboard for interpreting messages between the movement centre and the spinal cord - it is responsible for regulating voluntary movements. The different forms of dyskinesia result from damage to slightly different structures within the basal ganglia."
