Connolly, Christopher I. and Burns, J. Brian. A New Striatal Model and its Relationship to Basal Ganglia Diseases. Neuroscience Research, vol. 16, pp. 271-274, 1993.
A new model of the striatum has recently been proposed. This model suggests that the somatotopic regions of the striatum correspond to state spaces governing various aspects of organism behavior (e.g., reaching, egomotion, task planning). The model is reviewed, and shown to be applicable to sequencing tasks. The model is also discussed in the context of some basal ganglia diseases[…]
