Cortical and thalamic innervation of the striatum

Abstract:

The basal ganglia are a collection of sub-cortical nuclei involved in the execution of a range of motor and cognitive behaviours. The striatum is the input nucleus of the basal ganglia, receiving major excitatory innervation from the cerebral cortex and intralaminar thalamic nuclei.
