Basal ganglia: functional anatomy and neuropharmacology
The basal ganglia are a set of subcortical gray matter structures historically associated with motor function but are also involved in critical cognitive and limbic functions. Emerging evidence suggests that the functional anatomy of the basal ganglia may not be fully accounted for in the standard “rate” model. Various movement disorders can be associated with patterned changes in oscillations and bursts in the substructures of the basal ganglia.
