Regional brain function is determined by extrinsic connectivity and intrinsic property (Paasingham et al, 2002). The function of basal ganglia has long been associated with motor movements in human, while its connectivity pattern, studied in macaque monkeys has shown widespread connections with cerebral cortex. Recent technical advances in diffusion… CONTINUE READING
