Advances in knowledge about basal ganglia structure and connectivity from 1925 to date are reviewed. Current concepts about neuronal populations, transmitters, and input and output of each of the basal ganglia nuclei are presented. The portrayal by Wilson, in 1925, of the striatum as a simple homogeneous structure has been replaced by the recognition, based on staining characteristics, connectivity, and function, that the neostriatum is compartmentalized into striosomes, matrisomes, and matrix… Expand
Three-dimensional distribution of nigrostriatal neurons in the rat: relation to the topography of striatonigral projections
TLDR
Three-dimensional reconstructions confirmed and extended the organizational scheme of striatonigral projections as a set of longitudinal lamellae spatially organized so as to segregate the flow of information emanating from striatal regions affiliated to sensorimotor and associative-limbic cortical areas.

Distribution of Substantia Nigra Pars Compacta Neurons with Respect to Pars Reticulata Striato-Nigral Afferences: Computer-Assisted Three-Dimensional Reconstructions
Following ionophoretic injections of wheat germ agglutinin coupled to horseradish peroxidase into identified functional striatal territories of the rat brain, the distribution of anterogradelyExpand
A role of the basal ganglia and midbrain nuclei for initiation of motor sequences
TLDR
The impact of initiation mode on planning-related activity in the ventral basal ganglia and interconnected midbrain nuclei is demonstrated, thereby stressing the crucial role of distributed cortico-basal ganglia-thalamo-cortical networks for self-initiated automated motor repertoires. Expand
Non-sensory cortical and subcortical connections of the primary auditory cortex in Mongolian gerbils: Bottom-up and top-down processing of neuronal information via field AI
TLDR
The laminar pattern of corticocortical connections indicates that AI receives primarily cortical feedback-type inputs and projects in a feedforward manner to its target areas. Expand
Neuronal Firing Patterns in the Subthalamic Nucleus
TLDR
These procedures, which include high frequency stimulation and thermolytic lesion of the STN, significantly reduce the motor disturbances observed in human PD patients and in primate animal models of PD. Expand
Differential aging of the human striatum: a prospective MR imaging study.
TLDR
Bilateral age-related shrinkage of the neostriatum is found in healthy adults and may be restricted to men only, and significant rightward asymmetry in the putamen, significant leftward asymmetric in the caudate, and no asymmetryIn the globus pallidus is observed. Expand
Connections of the magnocellular medial preoptic nucleus (MPN mag) in male Syrian hamsters. II. The efferents
TLDR
The hypothesis that the magnocellular medial preoptic nucleus regulates male mating behavior by integrating chemosensory and hormonal signals and relaying this information to brainstem areas that control motor output is supported. Expand
Beyond the Cognitive Map: From Place Cells to Episodic Memory
There are currently two major theories about the role of the hippocampus, a distinctive structure in the back of the temporal lobe. One says that it stores a cognitive map, the other that it is a keyExpand
Co-localization of GABA with other neuroactive substances in the basal ganglia.

The dorsal striatum (caudate putamen) contains two types of GABAergic medium spiny neurons (MSNs) that are distinguished by the expression of either the opioid peptide, enkephalin, or the opioidExpand

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
The anatomical relationship of the prefrontal cortex with the striatopallidal system, the thalamus and the amygdala: evidence for a parallel organization.
TLDR
It is concluded that in this species, in analogy with the situation in primates, a number of parallel basal ganglia-thalamocortical circuits exist and the functions of the different subregions of the prefrontal cortex cannot be considered separately but must be viewed as components of the integrative functions ofThe circuits in which they are involved.

The topical organization of the afferents to the caudatoputamen of the rat. A horseradish peroxidase study
TLDR
Despite the homogeneous cytoarchitectonic structure of the caudatoputamen in the rat, this brain area is rather heterogeneous as regards its afferent connections, suggesting that the neostriatum is likely to be involved in very complex integrative functions involving several brain areas. Expand

The striatal patch and matrix compartments appear to be functionally distinct and interactive parallel input–output processing channels in the mammalian forebrain. Expand
A proposed conceptual reorganization of the basal ganglia and telencephalon

TLDR
The proposed reorganization does not deny the existence of such classical functional and anatomical subdivisions but focuses attention instead on two distinct telencephalic outflow systems each of which appears to serve overlapping and widespread parts of the telecephalon. 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
The functional anatomy of basal ganglia disorders
TLDR
A model in which specific types of basal ganglia disorders are associated with changes in the function of subpopulations of striatal projection neurons is proposed, which suggests that the activity of sub Populations of Striatal projections neurons is differentially regulated by striatal afferents and that different striatal projections may mediate different aspects of motor control.
