Mosher et al. show that neurons in human dorsal STN participate in movement, while those in ventral STN respond to stop-signals. Stop-signal responses are fast, in line with a race-model of action cancellation and in contrast to beta-bursting that occurs late. Neural activity in STN supports a hyperdirect parcellation of STN into functional zones.
