Cortico-subthalamic inputs from the motor, limbic, and associative areas in normal and dopamine-depleted rats are not fully segregated
TLDR
This study provides the first evidence that motor and non-motor cortico-subthalamic pathways in the rat are not fully segregated, but partially integrated. Expand
Globus pallidus degeneration and clinicopathological features of Huntington disease
TLDR
This study characterizes the pattern of neurodegeneration in 3 subdivisions of the human GP, and its relation to clinical symptomatology. Expand
The basal ganglia: anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology.
TLDR
It is clear that the basal ganglia form an important nexus in the binding of cognitive, limbic, and motor information into thought and action. Expand
Information processing, dimensionality reduction and reinforcement learning in the basal ganglia
TLDR
In-depth look at the reinforcement driven dimensionality reduction (RDDR) model which postulates that the basal ganglia compress cortical information according to a reinforcement signal using optimal extraction methods, which provides new insights and experimental predictions on the computational capacity of the basalganglia and their role in health and disease. Expand
Ockham's Razor Modeling of the Matrisome Channels of the Basal Ganglia Thalamocortical Loops
TLDR
It is argued that the resulting scheme has a straightforward connectionist representation exhibiting population coding and Hebbian learning properties and the model provides a scalable controller. Expand

TLDR
Simulations suggests that the basal ganglia work outside the realm of the stability condition allowed by the robustness of the SDS scheme and required for increased computation speeds. Expand
Synaptic Integration of Functionally Diverse Pallidal Information in the Entopeduncular Nucleus and Subthalamic Nucleus in the Rat
TLDR
It is concluded that functionally diverse information carried by the descending projections of the pallidal complex is synaptically integrated by neurons of the entopeduncular nucleus, lateral hypothalamus, and subthalamic nucleus by two mechanisms. Expand
Anatomy and Connectivity of the Subthalamic Nucleus in Humans and Non-human Primates
TLDR
This review will present the topographical and morphological organization of the nucleus and its connections to structurally and functionally related regions of the basal ganglia circuitry and highlight the importance of additional research in humans focused on validating STh connectivity, cytoarchitectural organization, and its functional subdivision. Expand
Recent advances in understanding the role of the basal ganglia
TLDR
A comparative overview of classic and contemporary models of basal ganglia organization and functional importance are presented, including their increased integration with cortical and cerebellar structures. Expand

Discharge patterns of pallidal neurons with input from various cortical areas during movement in the monkey
TLDR
Activities of pallidal neurons were studied in awake monkeys which were implanted with stimulating electrodes in the various cortical areas in the frontal lobe by inhibitory responses to stimulation through these electrodes. Expand
Disinhibition as a basic process in the expression of striatal functions
TLDR
It is reported that the basal ganglia contribute to the initiation of movement by arousing executive motor centres via a disinhibitory mechanism and it is proposed that thebasal ganglia output is used as a movement template specifying the motor elements to be engaged in directing movement in space. Expand
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. Expand
New frontiers in basal ganglia research
T he basal ganglia are undoubtedly among the most complex and least understood structures in the mammalian forebrain and, as in the case of the cerebral cortex, to which they are functionally andExpand
Responses of pallidal neurons to striatal stimulation in intact waking monkeys
TLDR
Topological arrangement suggests that excitation is used, temporally, to control the magnitude of the central striatopallidal inhibitory signal and, spatially, to focus and contrast it onto a restricted number of pallidal neurons. Expand
Responses of pallidal neurons to striatal stimulation in monkeys with MPTP-induced parkinsonism
TLDR
Both the temporal and spatial magnitudes of inhibitions and excitations are abnormal at the output of the basal ganglia in parkinsonism. Expand
Abnormal influences of passive limb movement on the activity of globus pallidus neurons in parkinsonian monkeys
TLDR
The results suggest that dopaminergic mechanisms regulate gain and selectivity in the basal ganglia in animals with decreased dopamine functions, and the excessive and unselective motor responses may explain all 3 major signs of parkinsonism. Expand
Golgi study of the primate substantia nigra. II. Spatial organization of dendritic arborizations in relation to the cytoarchitectonic boundaries and to the striatonigral bundle
TLDR
The spatial organization of Golgi‐stained dendritic arborizations of the substantia nigra was studied in three dimensions by using a video computer system to believe that nigral neurons exert a role of convergence of the corticostriatal information similar to that of pallidal neurons. Expand
A Golgi analysis of the primate globus pallidus. II. Quantitative morphology and spatial orientation of dendritic arborizations
TLDR
The morphology of pallidal neurons was analyzed quantitatively in Golgi‐impregnated brains of men and macaques and the existence of other pallidal neuronal groups, “intermediate” and “local circuit” neurons, identified in their fine morphological features by François et al. (1984), was confirmedquantitatively in the present study. Expand
A Golgi analysis of the primate globus pallidus. III. Spatial organization of the striato‐pallidal complex
TLDR
The tracing of the limit between the caudate and putaminal territories shows that the two components are of roughly the same size in the pallidum, indication that the globus pallidus may have an integrative role. Expand
