Hypothalamotomy has a distinct place in the management of hyperkinetic behaviour disorders of various types. It works because the area destroyed forms part of the limbic system. It seems to be more on the 'effector' side. It does not cause any morbidity. In the management hyperkinetic behaviour disorders the first target to be destroyed must be the amygdaloid nucleus. If this operations fails, then hypothalamotomy may be done as the next operation.
