Models of corticostriatal motor circuitry have focused on the role of the circuit in the hemisphere of the motor cortex providing primary control (contralateral to the movement). We used functional magnetic resonance imaging and functional connectivity analyses to study circuit function in both the controlling and noncontrolling hemispheres. During the(More)
The corticostriatal circuits are important information processing networks. There is evidence that these circuits may be dysfunctional in a variety of neuropsychiatric conditions ranging from Parkinson's disease to bipolar disorder. Cross-sectional fMRI studies may clarify normal circuit function, and longitudinal studies may provide information on changes(More)
BACKGROUND The neurobiology of panic disorder is incompletely understood. The aim of this study was to determine if functional abnormalities of the putamen occur in panic disorder. METHODS Activation patterns of 12 female subjects with panic disorder were compared to 18 female healthy controls using functional MRI at 3 T. A motor activation paradigm was(More)
