The prefrontal cortex and the basal ganglia form mutually connected networks and are thought to play essential roles together in guiding goal-directed behaviors. Yet, these structures seem to have independent pathways to motor outputs as well, suggesting differential contributions to goal-directed behaviors. We hypothesized that the prefrontal cortex guides actions to a direction required by external demands and the basal ganglia guide actions to an internally motivated direction.
