- Basal ganglia contributions to motor control: a vigorous tutorRobert S Turner
Department of Neurobiology, Systems Neuroscience Institute and Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA 15261, USA
Curr Opin Neurobiol 20:704-16. 2010..Results from these studies also add to the problems that confront theories positing that the BG selects movement, inhibits unwanted motor responses, corrects errors on-line, or stores and produces well-learned motor skills...
- Bursts and oscillations as independent properties of neural activity in the parkinsonian globus pallidus internusVanessa Chan
Center for Neuroscience, University of Pittsburgh, 4074 BST 3, 3501 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15261 0001, USA
Neurobiol Dis 41:2-10. 2011..We conclude that independent mechanisms may underlie the burst discharges and OF typical of most neurons in the parkinsonian GPi...
- DBS AND MOTOR CORTICAL FUNCTION IN AN MPTP MODEL OF PDRobert Turner; Fiscal Year: 2006..Ultimately, these studies will advance a more complete pathophysiologic model of PD by incorporating the full array of parkinsonian symptoms. ..
- MOTOR SEQUENCES AND FRONTAL/BASAL GANGLIA MOTOR CIRCUITSRobert Turner; Fiscal Year: 2002..It is hypothesized that pallidotomy will slow or eliminate the development of sequence-related neural discharge, whereas discharge related to overlearned motor sequences will remain unchanged. ..
