In addition to their well-known role in skeletal movements, the basal ganglia control saccadic eye movements (saccades) by means of their connection to the superior colliculus (SC). The SC receives convergent inputs from cerebral cortical areas and the basal ganglia. To make a saccade to an object purposefully, appropriate signals must be selected out of the cortical inputs, in which the basal ganglia play a crucial role. This is done by the sustained inhibitory input from the substantia nigra… Expand
Role of the primate basal ganglia in saccadic eye movements
The basal ganglia are critical for motor behavior, and a well-known deficit of basal ganglia disorders is the loss of voluntary control over movements. Many studies on the role of basal ganglia inExpand
Basal Ganglia and Oculomotor Control
TLDR
The basal ganglia control the initiation of saccadic eye movement using a series of GABAergic inhibitory connections to the superior colliculus and dopaminergic inputs to caudate neurons play a crucial role in supplying the motivational information. Expand
Shedding new light on the role of the basal ganglia-superior colliculus pathway in eye movements
TLDR
Advances in experimental and statistical techniques point toward a role for the basal ganglia-superior colliculus pathway in cognitive events intervening between vision and action, such as memory, target selection and saccade choice and valuation. Expand

TLDR
An essential function of the basal ganglia is to select, sort, and integrate innate movements and learned movements, together with cognitive and emotional mental operations, to achieve purposeful behaviors. Expand

The basal ganglia consist of three pairs of large nuclei, the caudate, putamen, and globus pallidus, that are buried deep within the cerebral hemispheres. These nuclei have long been known to help inExpand
Neural Activity in the Macaque Putamen Associated with Saccades and Behavioral Outcome
TLDR
The results suggest that the caudal putamen may be part of the neural network for goal-directed saccades, wherein the monitoring of saccadic eye movements, context and performance feedback may be processed together to ensure optimal behavioural performance and outcomes are achieved during ongoing behaviour. Expand
A hypothetical role of cortico-basal ganglia-thalamocortical loops in visual processing
TLDR
It follows from the model that only those components of cortical responses can be modulated by attention, whose onset exceeds the latency of visual responses of dopaminergic cells (50-110 ms). Expand
Neural substrate of antisaccades
TLDR
The results suggest that neither the basal ganglia nor the thalamus plays a major role in reflexive saccade suppression, but support the hypothesis of a direct DLPFC inhibitory control of saccades triggering on the SC. Expand
Nigral Inhibition of GABAergic Neurons in Mouse Superior Colliculus
TLDR
The present results revealed a novel aspect on the role of the basal ganglia in the control of saccades, e.g., the SNr not only regulates burst initiation but also modulates the spatiotemporal properties of premotor neurons via connections to local GABAergic neurons in the SC. Expand
New Cerebello-Cortical Pathway Involved in Higher-Order Oculomotor Control
The cerebellum and the basal ganglia play an important role in the control of voluntary eye movement associated with complex behavior, but little is known about how cerebellar projections project toExpand

Saccade Abnomalities in Patients with Caudate Lesion
TLDR
It is proposed that saccades were initiated by the disinhibitory mechanism through the caudate-nigro-collicular pathway (Hikosaka et al., 1989), and the subthalamic nucleus was proposed to enhance tonic firing of neurons of the substantia nigra pars reticulata and thus suppress unwanted eye movements.

TLDR
The results suggest that the local deprivation of the dopaminergic innervation in the caudate nucleus facilitates neuronal activity of the SNr leading to suppression of saccadic eye movements. Expand

The deep layers of the superior colliculus.
TLDR
There is no experimental evidence that the activity of deep collicular neurons responsive to sensory stimuli is either necessary or sufficient for the generation of the motor signals observed in the SC, and patterns of connections within the SC specifically involved in the translation of sensory signals into motor commands have been identified.

TLDR
It is found that multiple dispersed modules (“matrisomes”) in the putamen that all received inputs from single body-part representations in sensorimotor cortex could, in turn, send convergent outputs to single sites in the pallidum. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that a substantial fraction of GABA-mediated inhibitory inputs in the SC originates from the substantia nigra pars reticulata, which exerts a tonic inhibition on saccade-related cells in SC and that this inhibition is mediated by GABA. Expand
A Computational Model of How the Basal Ganglia Produce Sequences
TLDR
The behavior of the model was found to be sensitive to the ratio of the striatal-nigral learning rate to the STN-GP learning rate, and the degree of striatal inhibition of the globus pallidus had a significant influence on both learning and the ability to select an action. Expand

This hypothesis that cells in the substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNr) tonically inhibit saccade-related Cells in the intermediate layers of the superior colliculus (SC) is tested by injecting a GABA agonist (muscimol) or a GABA antagonist (bicuculline) into the superiorColliculus and measured the effects on saccadic eye movements made to visual or remembered targets.
