  • Caudate Nucleus
  • Reviews of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies suggest that long-term treatment with amphetamine decreases abnormalities in brain structure and function found in subjects with ADHD, and improves function in several parts of the brain, such as the right caudate nucleus of the basal ganglia. (wikipedia.org)
  • neurons
  • We hypothesized that an increased excitability of striatal neurons may allow transmission of cortical slow rhythms through the striatum to the remaining basal ganglia in experimental parkinsonism. (jneurosci.org)
  • This information is sent from receptors of the skin, bones, and joints through sensory neurons whose cell bodies lie in the dorsal root ganglion. (wikipedia.org)
  • The principal neurons are glutamatergic, which give them a particular functional position in the basal ganglia system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Except for the connection to the striatum (17.3% in macaques), most of the subthalamic principal neurons are multitargets and directed to the other elements of the core of the basal ganglia. (wikipedia.org)
  • signals
  • The motor cortices send signals through the basal ganglia to refine the choice of muscles that will participate in the movement and to amplify the activity in the motor cortices that will drive the muscle contractions. (wikipedia.org)
  • arise
  • Hypokinetic symptoms arise from damage to the basal ganglia, which plays a role in producing force and computing the effort necessary to make a movement. (wikipedia.org)
  • movement
  • This structure is part of the basal ganglia, a part of the brain involved in the control of willed (voluntary) movement of the muscles. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The other category of movement disorder resulting from damage to the basal ganglia, hyperkinesia, features an exaggeration of unwanted motion, like twitching or writhing in Huntington's disease or Tourette syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
