it will actually depend upon the size of the spot occupying the amount f area. otherwise,
any lesion in BG(Basal Ganglia)leads to various movement disorders....for eg.difficulty initiating the movt.(freezing episodes), slowness of movement(esp. walking), postural instability and many more...Parkinson's Disease(well known disease and the above mentioned features collectively known as).it is generally an old age disease.

Rest can be better told as per the complete history.
