  • With the rapid accumulation of neuroscientific data comes a pressing need to develop models that can explain the computational processes performed by the basal ganglia. Relevant biological information spans a range of structural levels, from the activity of neuronal membranes to the role of the basal ganglia in overt behavioural control. This viewpoint presents a framework for understanding the aims, limitations and methods for testing of computational models across all structural levels. We… CONTINUE READING
