Basal ganglia disorders are a heterogeneous group of clinical syndromes with a common anatomic locus within the basal ganglia. To account for the variety of clinical manifestations associated with insults to various parts of the basal ganglia we propose a model in which specific types of basal ganglia disorders are associated with changes in the function of subpopulations of striatal projection neurons. This model is based on a synthesis of experimental animal and post-mortem human anatomic and… Expand

Neurotransmitters and Disorders of the Basal Ganglia
TLDR
The basal ganglia are implicated in a large number of behaviors, including self-initiated (internally generated) movements, procedural learning, scaling of movement parameters, and movement sequencing. Expand
Functional Anatomy and Pathophysiology of the Basal Ganglia
Publisher Summary This chapter provides an overview of the functional organization of the basal ganglia and briefly reviews the current status of understanding regarding the abnormal functioning ofExpand
Handbook of basal ganglia structure and function
The Basal Ganglia comprise a group of forebrain nuclei that are interconnected with the cerebral cortex, thalamus and brainstem. Basal ganglia circuits are involved in various functions, includingExpand
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.

Neurophysiology of basal ganglia diseases.

TLDR
This chapter discusses the neurophysiology of basal ganglia diseases, which reflect altered processing of input to the spinal cord or abnormal supraspinal control of the interneurons that mediate presynaptic inhibition. Expand
Synaptic Plasticity of Basal Ganglia Output Neurons in Movement Disorders
TLDR
It is demonstrated for the first time, that activity-dependent synaptic plasticity is also present in human GPi, and a lack of a form of plasticity called depotentiation is demonstrated in basal ganglia output nuclei of PD patients with dyskinesia. Expand
Basal Ganglia Motor Circuit and Physiology of Parkinsonism
The basal ganglia are a group of nuclei located in the deep portion of the brain. Along with the cerebellum, the basal ganglia have a major role in controlling human voluntary movements, and theirExpand
Systems Level Physiology of the Basal Ganglia, and Pathophysiology of Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
This chapter discusses in detail general composition of basal ganglia circuits, which include direct and indirect pathways and functions of dopamine, and concludes with a discussion on pathophysiology of Parkinsonism. Expand
Re-evaluation of the functional anatomy of the basal ganglia in normal and Parkinsonian states
TLDR
This article reviews recent data from different experimental approaches that challenge the established model of basal ganglia organization by reinterpreting the functional interaction between the external segment of the pallidum and the subthalamic nucleus in both the normal and pathological state. Expand
Pathophysiology of Parkinsonism
TLDR
The evidence that implicates electrophysiologic changes (including altered discharge rates, increased incidence of burst firing, interneuronal synchrony, oscillatory activity, and altered sensorimotor processing) in basal ganglia, thalamus, and cortex, in parkinsonism is discussed. Expand

TLDR
Common neural mechanisms underlie the appearance of dyskinesia in ballism and chorea and in parkinsonism, which results in excessive inhibition of lateral pallidal neurons and, as a consequence, disinhibition of the subthalamic nucleus. Expand
Immunocytochemical studies on the basal ganglia and substantia nigra in Parkinson's disease and Huntington's chorea
TLDR
A number of changes in peptide-containing pathways in human degenerative disorders that may reflect the degeneration of neuronal pathways either as a primary event or secondary to initial lesion are reported. Expand

TLDR
It has always been something of a mystery as to why different diseases of the basal ganglia may produce completely opposite effects on movement, but more detailed examination of the exact sites of striatal damage in the two opposing conditions may resolve this theoretic paradox. Expand
New perspectives in basal forebrain organization of special relevance for neuropsychiatric disorders: The striatopallidal, amygdaloid, and corticopetal components of substantia innominata
TLDR
Consideration of morphological and connectional characteristics of basal forebrain suggests that the corticopetal cell groups, together with magnocellular elements of the striatum, serve similar functional roles for the striatopallidal system, the extended amygdala, and the septal-diagonal band complex.

TLDR
A progressive brain disease featured by supranuclear ophthalmoplegia affecting chiefly vertical gaze, pseudobulbar palsy, dysarthria, dystonic rigidity of the neck and upper trunk, and other less constant cerebellar and pyramidal symptoms. Expand
Mosaic distribution of opiate receptors, parafascicular projections and acetylcholinesterase in rat striatum
TLDR
It is reported that there is a precise mosaic ‘fit’ in striatal ‘islands’ of closely packed opiate receptors, vacancies in the termination of parafascicular projections and AChE-poor zones. Expand
A consideration of sensory factors involved in motor functions of the basal ganglia
TLDR
The literature suggests that sensory aspects of BG functioning must be taken into account to fully appreciate the role of this system in motor control, and an alternative approach is presented that follows from consideration of a variety of clinical and experimental findings. Expand
Morphometric studies of the neuropathological changes in choreatic diseases
TLDR
For the first time it has been shown that there is no increase in the absolute number of glial cells in the striatum, and the increased numerical density ofglial cells is caused by shrinkage. Expand
The neostriatal mosaic: compartmentalization of corticostriatal input and striatonigral output systems
TLDR
The striatal patch and matrix compartments appear to be functionally distinct and interactive parallel input–output processing channels in the mammalian forebrain. Expand

TLDR
Experimental evidence is provided that these patch- matrix mesostriatal dopaminergic systems are biochemically and developmentally distinct. Expand
