Since its conception three decades ago, the idea that the striatum consists of a dorsal sensorimotor part and a ventral portion processing limbic information has sparked a quest for functional correlates and anatomical characteristics of the striatal divisions. But this classic dorsal-ventral distinction might not offer the best view of striatal function. Anatomy and neurophysiology show that the two striatal areas have the same basic structure and that sharp boundaries are absent. Behaviorally… Expand
The Tail of the Striatum: From Anatomy to Connectivity and Function
TLDR
An overview of past and recent studies revealing that the TS displays a heterogeneous cell-type-specific organization, and a unique input-output connectivity, which poises the TS as an integrator of sensory processing is provided. Expand
Limbic-Basal Ganglia Circuits Parallel and Integrative Aspects
TLDR
It is clear that the ‘limbic’, ventral striatum contributes to an extended basal ganglia circuitry that involves the return projections to the prefrontal cortex via various thalamic nuclei, projection to the ventral mesencephalon, potentially influencing the monoaminergic ascending projection systems. Expand
The structural basis for mapping behavior onto the ventral striatum and its subdivisions
TLDR
This review is focused on evaluating the structural differences in nucleus accumbens core and shell neurons and discusses how such different morphologies could underlie distinguishable behavioral processes. Expand
Organization of Prefrontal-Striatal Connections
This chapter describes the organization of the prefrontal-striatal projections. There exists a topographical relationship in these projections, such that sensorimotor cortices project to theExpand
Chapter 21 – Organization of Prefrontal-Striatal Connections
TLDR
It will be explained that the prefrontal-corticostriatal topography nicely lines up with the topographical organization of midline/intralaminar thalamocortical and thalamOSTriatal, as well as with amygdalocorticals and amygdAlostriata projections, creating triangular relationships between these cortical and subcortical structures.

From ventral-medial to dorsal-lateral striatum: Neural correlates of reward-guided decision-making
TLDR
Data is described showing that as one progresses from ventral-medial to dorsal-lateral striatum, there is a shift from more prominent value encoding to activity more closely related to associative and motor aspects of decision-making. Expand
Parallel associative processing in the dorsal striatum: Segregation of stimulus–response and cognitive control subregions
TLDR
Evidence indicating that the dorsolateral striatum is a substrate for stimulus-response habit formation - incremental strengthening of simple S-R bonds - via input from sensorimotor neocortex is reviewed. Expand
Gating of Limbic Input to the Ventral Striatum
Publisher Summary This chapter explores that the nucleus accumbens (NAc) is a hub for information related to reward, motivation, and decision-making. As a striatal region, it receives cortical inputsExpand
Cognitive and Stimulus–Response Habit Functions of the Neo-(Dorsal) Striatum
In earlier work, we proposed a theoretical model of dorsal striatal function in which the dorsolateral striatum (DLS) contributes to simple stimulus–response habit formation throughExpand
Striatal Contributions to Reward and Decision Making
Abstract:  The striatum is the major input nucleus of the basal ganglia. It is thought to play a key role in learning on the basis of positive reinforcement and in action selection. One view of theExpand

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.

TLDR
The basal ganglia and frontal cortex operate together to execute goal directed behaviors, and action decision-making processes are influenced by motivation and cognitive inputs, allowing the animal to respond appropriate to environmental cues. Expand
Modulation of synaptic transmission by dopamine and norepinephrine in ventral but not dorsal striatum.
TLDR
The results suggest that the functional roles of dopamine and norepinephrine are not the same in the dorsal striatum and the NAc, and synaptic transmission in these nuclei is modulated by catecholamines. Expand
Prefrontal Cortical–Ventral Striatal Interactions Involved in Affective Modulation of Attentional Performance: Implications for Corticostriatal Circuit Function
TLDR
The mPFC/AcbC disconnection resulted in a behavioral profile largely distinct from that produced by disconnection of a similar circuit described previously, between themPFC and the dorsomedial striatum, which were shown to form a functional network underlying aspects of visual attention and attention to action.

Representation of the body by single neurons in the dorsolateral striatum of the awake, unrestrained rat
TLDR
Neurons related to individual body parts were recorded throughout the entire anterior‐posterior extent of the dorsolateral striatum and representations of the head and face were located ventral to those of the limbs, despite substantial overlap in their overall distributions. Expand
Functionally selective neurochemical afferents and efferents of the mesocorticolimbic and nigrostriatal dopamine system.
In summary, evidence is presented that the mesocorticolimbic and nigrostriatal dopamine systems form functionally selective afferents to different parts of the basal ganglia and these inputs areExpand
