Tracing studies in non-human primates support the existence of several parallel neuronal circuits involving cerebral cortex, basal ganglia and thalamus. Distinct functional loops were proposed to underlie multiple aspects of normal and pathological behaviour in man. We present here the first anatomical evidence for separate corticostriatal systems in humans. Neural connections of the sensorimotor and prefrontal cortex to the striatum were studied in one human brain using the Nauta method for… CONTINUE READING
