About these proceedings
In this volume, which is based on the proceedings of the international symposium "Functional Linkages Between the Cerebral Cortex and Basal Ganglia in the Control of Voluntary Movement", held December 1993 in Osaka, Japan, the world's leading neuroscientists present the most up-to-date findings of current research on cortico-basal ganglia relations. Topics addressed in this book include the structure and function of basal ganglia cells and systems, the organization of thalamo-cortical systems, the frontal cortex, and clinical applications of ongoing studies. Of particular interest is the analysis of models of motor learning and functional schemes of cortico-basal ganglia and striatal circuitry. The valuable new insights this interdisciplinary work provides will benefit researchers and students in fields such as neurobiology, behavioral neurophysiology, neurochemistry, and neuropharmacology.
