    The article discusses research on dystonia. It references a study by Kamran Khodakhah et al published in the February 6, 2011 issue of "Nature Neuroscience." The study reported that the most devastating aspects of dystonia are coming from the cerebellum and not from the basal ganglia as what...

    Many computational models of the basal ganglia (BG) have been proposed over the past twenty-five years. While computational neuroscience models have focused on closely matching the neurobiology of the BG, computational cognitive neuroscience (CCN) models have focused on how the BG can be used to...
