The organisation of afferent input to the basal ganglia

Abstract:

The basal ganglia are a collection of interconnected subcortical nuclei involved in movement, association, motivation and reward processing. Two populations of neurons that play critical roles in the basal ganglia are dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra (SN) and neurons of the subthalamic nucleus (STN). To define the afferent input to these neurons, which ultimately controls their activity, quantitative immunocytochemical analyses of afferent synaptic terminals was carried out at ...
