It concisely offers the speculation, instead of comprehensively masking all of the literature, and areas the fundamental medical evidence inside of a framework formulated for regular operations of the basal ganglia. proposing a unified view, the ebook takes numerous steps towards unraveling the riddle that's basal ganglia.

This has further implications: i. The neural computations accomplished in the basal ganglia as a whole should also be concerned with behavior and other large-scale aspects of information processing, rather than with purely local computations (as is the case with the CTH network). ii. Those CTH cell assemblies that do lead to behavioral output are likely, for most of the time, to be suppressed at the thalamic points of control by tonic inhibition. 3 Tonic activity of neurons in basal ganglionic output nuclei in in vivo and in slice preparations.
