The nervous system contains a toolbox of motor programs in the brainstem and spinal cord--that is, neuronal networks designed to handle the basic motor repertoire required for survival, including locomotion, posture, eye movements, breathing, chewing, swallowing and expression of emotions. The neural mechanisms responsible for selecting which motor program should be recruited at a given instant are the focus of this review. Motor programs are kept under tonic inhibition by GABAergic pallidal… Expand
Fundamentals of Motor Systems
This chapter provides an overview of the vertebrate motor system starting with basic cellular components like the different types of motoneurons that control a variety of movements from the very fastExpand
The evolutionary origin of the vertebrate basal ganglia and its role in action selection
TLDR
Data is presented showing that the structure and function of the basal ganglia have been conserved throughout vertebrate evolution over some 560 million years, as well as the interaction between the different nuclei within the basal Ganglia is conserved aswell as the cellular and synaptic properties and transmitters. Expand
Non-motor function of the midbrain dopaminergic neurons.
TLDR
The roles of the nigrostriatal pathway are far beyond the simple control of motor functions, and the abnormal and improper association of units leads to the initiation of unpurposeful and sometimes repetitive actions, as those observed in dyskinetic patients. Expand
The basal ganglia can control learned motor sequences independently of motor cortex
TLDR
Understanding of basal ganglia function is extended, by suggesting that they can control and modulate lower-level subcortical motor circuits on a moment-by-moment basis to generate stereotyped learned motor sequences. Expand
Distinct roles for motor cortical and thalamic inputs to striatum during motor learning and execution
TLDR
Results show that the sensorimotor striatum is a conduit through which motor cortical inputs can drive experience-dependent changes in subcortical motor circuits, likely at thalamostriatal synapses. Expand
The Brain and Spinal Cord Networks Controlling Locomotion
TLDR
New neuronal components of the brain and spinal networks are rapidly emerging, and these developments are superimposed on the fundamental knowledge collected over the last century in this chapter. Expand

Basal Ganglia-A Motion Perspective.
TLDR
The detailed organization of the basalganglia, with the different cell types, their properties, and contributions to basal ganglia functions are discussed. Expand
Exploration of the lamprey pallidal neurons – a combined computational and experimental study
TLDR
The membrane properties and the synaptic control of the neurons in the lamprey basal ganglia output stages are investigated and electrophysiological and immunohistochemical studies to investigate morphology and physiology properties are combined. Expand
BRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM | Motor Control Systems of Fish
TLDR
The different motor systems of jawed fish as well as the cyclostomes (lampreys and hagfishes) are considered, using lamprey as the main example because more is known about it than other fish taxa and also because most of the basic features of the nervous system of jawing fish and cyclostome are very similar, particularly those related to motor function.

TLDR
The hypothesis states that the basal ganglia do not generate movements, and when voluntary movement is generated by cerebral cortical and cerebellar mechanisms, the basal Ganglia act broadly to inhibit competing motor mechanisms that would otherwise interfere with the desired movement. Expand
Role of basal ganglia–brainstem pathways in the control of motor behaviors
TLDR
It can be proposed that dysfunction of the basal ganglia-brainstem system together with that of cortico-basal ganglia loop underlies the pathogenesis of behavioral disturbances expressed in basal Ganglia dysfunction. Expand
Role of the basal ganglia in the control of purposive saccadic eye movements.
TLDR
The interaction between cortical and dopaminergic inputs to CD neurons may underlie the behavioral adaptation toward purposeful saccades, which reflects working memory, expectation, and attention. Expand
Cortical and brainstem control of locomotion.
TLDR
It is suggested that, during both locomotion and reaching movements, the final expression of descending signals is influenced by the state and excitability of the spinal circuits upon which they impinge. Expand
Inhibitory control of neostriatal projection neurons by GABAergic interneurons
TLDR
Paired whole-cell recordings are used to show that inhibitory synaptic potentials generated from single interneurons are sufficiently powerful to delay or entirely block the generation of action potentials in a large number of projection neurons simultaneously. Expand

TLDR
The hypothesis that different parts of the network controlling locomotion can be used in a variety of other motor acts, including learned ones, is reviewed. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that dysfunction of the basal ganglia-brainstem system, together with that of the cortico-basal ganglia loop, underlies the pathogenesis of motor disturbances expressed in basal Ganglia diseases. Expand
Synaptic organisation of the basal ganglia
TLDR
It is concluded that the essential concept of the direct and indirect pathways of information flow through the basal ganglia remains intact but that the role of the indirect pathway is more complex than previously suggested and that neurons of the globus pallidus are in a position to control the activity of virtually the whole of the basalganglia.

Basal ganglia efferents to the brainstem centers controlling postural muscle tone and locomotion: a new concept for understanding motor disorders in basal ganglia dysfunction
TLDR
It is concluded that disorders of the basal ganglia may include dysfunction of the nigrotegmental (basal ganglia-brainstem) systems, which consequently leads to the production of abnormal muscle tone and gait disturbance. Expand
