Anatomically segregated basal ganglia pathways allow parallel behavioral modulation

Nature Neuroscience, Published online: 28 September 2020; doi:10.1038/s41593-020-00712-5

This study demonstrates that basal ganglia functional topography is maintained across and downstream of its output nuclei, and in closed loops. Focal stimulation of distinct striatal subregions induces distinct action, supporting a model of parallel behavioral control.
