The basal ganglia have received increasing attention with regard to their role in time pacing, motor function and other components of cognition. The aim of this study was to test whether the finer the motor activity and/or time perception performance were, the higher the striatal dopamine D(2) binding would be. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with [(123)I]iodobenzamide (IBZM) was performed to measure striatal D(2) receptor densities. A battery of neuropsychological tests… CONTINUE READING
