Architecture Of Cholinergic Pre-And Postsynaptic Markers In The Primate Striatum

The basal ganglia are the critical relay for the extrapyramidal system and the execution of motor function. Marsden has suggested that the basal ganglia are responsible for the automatic execution of learned motor plans (21). The basal ganglia may also play a role in higher cognitive functions. Injury to the basal ganglia is known to produce changes in a variety of behavioral functions in humans and animals including learning, language and personality (4, 32). The degree to which the basal ganglia are involved in cognitive processes is, at present, poorly understood. However, connectional and chemoarchitectural studies have demonstrated that the basal ganglia comprise highly heterogeneous and complex structures which are linked to different neural systems in brain.
