Models of corticostriatal motor circuitry have focused on the role of the circuit in the hemisphere of the motor cortex providing primary control (contralateral to the movement). We used functional magnetic resonance imaging and functional connectivity analyses to study circuit function in both the controlling and noncontrolling hemispheres. During the completion of a unilateral motor task with either hand, each putamen nucleus demonstrated strong coactivation with structures in both… Expand
Functional architecture of the cortico‐basal ganglia circuitry during motor task execution: Correlations of strength of functional connectivity with neuropsychological task performance among female subjects
TLDR
Findings add to accumulating evidence that the GPe may play a role in higher order basal ganglia processing by suggesting circuit processes may be more relevant for future behaviors than the execution of the current task. Expand
The Importance of Premotor Cortex for Supporting Speech Production after Left Capsular-Putaminal Damage
TLDR
The four-pronged approach to identify the neural regions and pathways that compensate for loss of the left putamen during speech production have clinical implications for predicting which patients are more or less likely to recover their speech after left putaminal damage. Expand
Reliability of fMRI motor tasks in structures of the corticostriatal circuitry: Implications for future studies and circuit function
TLDR
The findings suggest that the motor tasks studied can be useful probes of corticostriatal function for studies utilizing group comparisons, but longitudinal clinical studies in which individual results are important will need to take into account wide variation in individual activation and reliability. Expand
Cortical and subcortical areas involved in the regulation of reach movement speed in the human brain: An fMRI study
TLDR
A network of multiple cortical and subcortical brain regions that are involved in speed regulation among which putamen, anterior thalamus, and PMC show highest specificity to speed are revealed, suggesting a basal‐ganglia‐thalamo‐ cortical loop for speed regulation. Expand
Age-related changes of the functional architecture of the cortico-basal ganglia circuitry during motor task execution
TLDR
Results indicated that increasing age is associated with changes in the functional architecture of the cortico-basal ganglia circuitry, and increased connectivity reflects a decline in brain function rather than a compensatory process. Expand
Neural processes of preparatory control for stop signal inhibition
TLDR
It is suggested that the go and stop processes interact prior to target presentation in the SST, in accord with recent computational models of stop signal inhibition. Expand
Reading Aloud Boosts Connectivity through the Putamen
TLDR
The results provide strong evidence that reading boosts the aOT–PrC pathway via the putamen but not the thalamus, and conclude that thePutamen plays a special role in reading but this is likely to vary with individual reading preferences and strategies. Expand
Activation of the pre-supplementary motor area but not inferior prefrontal cortex in association with short stop signal reaction time – an intra-subject analysis
TLDR
Comparing regional brain activation between the two sessions of the SST confirmed greater preSMA but not rIFC activity during short as compared to long SSRT session within individuals, consistent with a role of medial prefrontal cortex in controlled action and inferior frontal cortex in orienting attention. Expand
Measurement of stretch-evoked brainstem function using fMRI
TLDR
StretchfMRI combines robotic perturbations with electromyography and fMRI to simultaneously quantify muscular and neural activity during stretch-evoked LLRs without loss of reliability, and established the muscle-specific organization of LLR activity in the brainstem. Expand

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 role of the basal ganglia in bimanual coordination
TLDR
Interestingly, putaminal activity was greatest during the period of motor task initiation, and activity during this period was greatest in the parallel condition, suggesting a critical role of the basal ganglia in the neural control of bimanual coordination. Expand
Reorganization and plasticity in the adult brain during learning of motor skills
TLDR
The functional anatomy and the cerebral plasticity associated with both motor sequence learning and motor adaptation is discussed based in work and that of others using brain imaging techniques and a new model of motor skill learning is presented. Expand
Corticostriatal transformations in the primate somatosensory system. Projections from physiologically mapped body-part representations.
TLDR
These experiments demonstrate that the somatosensory representations of the body are reorganized as they are projected from SI to the somatoensory sector of the primate putamen, suggesting that the striatal representation of theBody may be functionally distinct from that of each area of SI. Expand
Basal ganglia-thalamocortical circuits: parallel substrates for motor, oculomotor, "prefrontal" and "limbic" functions.
TLDR
It now appears that at the level of the putamen such inputs remain segregated within the "motor" circuit, and it is difficult to imagine how such functional specificity could be maintained in the absence of strict topographic specificity within the sequential projections that comprise these two circuits.

Morphology and synaptic connections of crossed corticostriatal neurons in the rat

TLDR
The neurons of origin of the bilateral corticostriatal projection arising from the medial agranular cortical field in rats were identified by antidromic activation from contralateral neostriatum stimulation and their laminar organization, and their responses to stimulation were examined and compared with crossed corticocortical and brainstem‐projecting cells. Expand
Parallel organization of functionally segregated circuits linking basal ganglia and cortex.
TLDR
The basal ganglia serve primarily to integrate diverse inputs from the entire cerebral cortex and to "funnel" these influences, via the ventrolateral thalamus, to the motor cortex. Expand
Anatomical evidence for cerebellar and basal ganglia involvement in higher cognitive function.
TLDR
Retrograde transneuronal transport of herpes simplex virus type 1 was used to identify subcortical neurons that project via the thalamus to area 46 of the primate prefrontal cortex, defining an anatomical substrate for the involvement of basal ganglia and cerebellar output in higher cognitive function.

Thalamic distribution of projection neurons to the primary motor cortex relative to afferent terminal fields from the globus pallidus in the macaque monkey
TLDR
The distribution of thalamocortical neurons projecting to the motor cortex with the distribution of afferent terminal fields from the pallidum in the ventrolateral nuclear group of the thalamus is compared in four Japanese monkeys by using the anterograde and retrograde double‐labeling method.

THE BASAL GANGLIA: FOCUSED SELECTION AND INHIBITION OF COMPETING MOTOR PROGRAMS
  • J. Mink

  • 1996
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
