A case of unilateral basal ganglion hemorrhage with Cheyne-Stokes respirations is presented. During the hyperpneic periods there was rhythmic alpha activity in the hemisphere contralateral to the basal ganglion hemorrhage. We postulate that the hemorrhage interrupted the thalamocortical fibers on the involved side. The implications of this clinical evidence are discussed in the light of the theory of cerebral autorhythmicity.
