Exploring the role of the substantia nigra pars reticulata in eye movements.
Experiments that demonstrated a role for the substantia nigra in eye movements have played an important role in our understanding of the function of the basal ganglia in behavior more broadly. In this review we explore more ...
Advances in understanding mechanisms of thalamic relays in cognition and behavior.
(J Neurosci, 2014-11-12)
The main impetus for a mini-symposium on corticothalamic interrelationships was the recent number of studies highlighting the role of the thalamus in aspects of cognition beyond sensory processing. The thalamus contributes ...
Brain circuits for the internal monitoring of movements.
(Annu Rev Neurosci, 2008)
Each movement we make activates our own sensory receptors, thus causing a problem for the brain: the spurious, movement-related sensations must be discriminated from the sensory inputs that really matter, those representing ...
