This paper reviews some of the recent findings on different aspects of the anatomical organization of the basal ganglia. Attempts have been made to delineate the anatomical substrate of information processing along the cortico-basal ganglia-thalamo-cortical loop. Emphasis has been placed on data obtained with highly sensitive anterograde tract-tracing methods applied to the study of the main axis of the loop, which is composed of the striatum, the pallidum, and the substantia nigra. These… 
The thalamostriatal system: a highly specific network of the basal ganglia circuitry
TLDR
This review emphasizes the high degree of anatomical and functional specificity of basal ganglia-thalamostriatal projections and discusses various aspects of the synaptic connectivity and neurochemical features that differentiate this glutamate system from the corticostRIatal network.
The anatomical relationships of the prefrontal cortex with limbic structures and the basal ganglia
TLDR
The results of tracing studies in rats indicate that these thalamic and limbic inputs both at the level of the PFC and the ventral striatum show various patterns of convergence and segregation, which leads to the conclusion that the P FC-ventral striatal system consists of a number of smaller modules.
The mouse cortico-basal ganglia-thalamic network
TLDR
This study identifies 6 parallel cortico-basal ganglia-thalamic subnetworks that sequentially transduce specific subsets of cortical information with complex patterns of convergence and divergence through every elemental node of the entire cortico,basal, andthalamic loop.
Somatotopic Organization of the Primate Basal Ganglia

  • 2011
TLDR
The somatotopic organization of the basal ganglia, which consist of the striatum, subthalamic nucleus, globus pallidus, and substantia nigra, is described, which may explain, at least in part, the pathophysiology of movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease and dystonia.
Interactions between the Midbrain Superior Colliculus and the Basal Ganglia
TLDR
For one midbrain structure, the superior colliculus (SC), anatomical evidence for closed-loop connectivity with the basal ganglia is robust, and can serve as an example against which the loop hypothesis can be evaluated for other subcortical structures.
Neural circuits and topographic organization of the basal ganglia and related regions
  • K. Nakano
  • Medicine, Psychology

  • 2000
TLDR
There may be a great degree of convergence of the limbic, associative and motor loops at the level of the striatum, substantia nigra, pallidum, and the subthalamic nucleus as well as the pedunculopontine nucleus in subhuman primates.
Functional anatomy of the basal ganglia: limbic aspects.
TLDR
Important interactions exist between the limbic system and the BG system but questions remain about the role that this information plays in the functional organisation of this system.
The mouse cortico–basal ganglia–thalamic network
TLDR
This work maps the multi-synaptic output pathways of these striatal domains through the globus pallidus external part (GPe), substantia nigra reticular part (SNr), thalamic nuclei and cortex, and identifies six parallel cortico–basal ganglia–thalamic subnetworks that sequentially transduce specific subsets of cortical information through every elemental node of the cortico-basal Ganglia-thalamic loop.
Somatotopy in the basal ganglia: experimental and clinical evidence for segregated sensorimotor channels
TLDR
Current knowledge about the somatotopic segregation of basal ganglia sensorimotor areas is reviewed and in detail what is known about their body maps is outlined.

Fiber connections of the basal ganglia.
TLDR
This chapter aims to incorporate the results of recent work on the anatomy into a general outline of the fiber connections of the basal ganglia, finding that the two great subcortical divisions of the cerebral hemisphere are tied together by pathways that over successive synaptic linkages lose their identities as skeletomotor or limbic.
Anatomical aspects of information processing in primate basal ganglia
TLDR
Evidence for the highly ordered organization of the striatopalidal and subthalamopallidal projections is taken as an indication that the subthalamic nucleus uniformly excites a vast collection of pallidal neurons, whereas the striatum exerts a more specific inhibitory control upon selected subsets ofSubthalamically driven pallidal neuron.
Patterns of termination of cerebellar and basal ganglia efferents in the rat thalamus. Strictly segregated and partly overlapping projections
TLDR
In this study, the pattern of thalamic innervations provided by the deep cerebellar nuclei, the entopeduncular nucleus, and the substantia nigra pars reticulata was reinvestigated in the rat using the anterograde tracers Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin and wheat germ agglutin in order to confirm the existence of some overlap in the cerebellum and basal ganglia projection fields.
Striatal and subthalamic afferents to the primate pallidum: interactions between two opposite chemospecific neuronal systems.
TLDR
A special attention is paid to the recent data obtained with the double anterograde labeling method demonstrating that the excitatory glutamatergic subthalamopallidal projection and the inhibitory GABAergic striatopallials converge upon single pallidal neurons in primates.

Functional architecture of basal ganglia circuits: neural substrates of parallel processing
TLDR
Recent evidence indicating that a parallel functional architecture may also be characteristic of the organization within each individual circuit is discussed, which represents a significant departure from earlier concepts of basal ganglia organization.
The neostriatal mosaic: multiple levels of compartmental organization
  • C. Gerfen
  • Medicine, Biology
    Trends in Neurosciences
  • 1992
TLDR
Neurochemical markers display complex mosaic patterns in the striatum that, when examined in the context of the multi-level compartmental organization of the Striatal output systems, reveal the highly organized manner by which thestriatum processes cortical information.
Extrinsic connections of the basal ganglia
  • A. Parent
  • Medicine, Biology
    Trends in Neurosciences
  • 1990
TLDR
This paper briefly reviews some of the findings that have led to the conclusion that the major components of the basal ganglia can no longer be considered as single undifferentiated entities and instead are characterized by several distinct afferent and efferent chemospecific subsystems by which they can modulate and convey the multifarious information that flows through the basalganglia.
Multiple output channels in the basal ganglia.
TLDR
Retrograde transneuronal transport of herpes simplex virus type 1 was used to examine the organization of connections in the cebus monkey between an output nucleus of the basal ganglia, the internal segment of the globus pallidus, and three cortical areas: the primary motor cortex, the supplementary motor ara, and the ventral premotor area.
The neostriatal mosaic: striatal patch-matrix organization is related to cortical lamination.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the compartmental organization of corticostriatal inputs is related to their laminar origin and secondarily to the cytoarchitectonic area of origin.
