Book Description

The Second Edition of the Handbook of the Structure and Function of the Basal Ganglia; (PDF) provides a comprehensive overview of the anatomical and functional characteristics of the basal ganglia, with an emphasis on the therapeutic importance of these elements. The basal ganglia are a set of forebrain nuclei that are associated with the cerebral cortex, the thalamus, and the brainstem. They are required for several activities of the brain, including sensory integration, motor control, learning, and cognition.

These nuclei are necessary for normal brain function and behavior, and their significance is further emphasized by the numerous and varied disorders that are associated with basal ganglia dysfunction. Some examples of these disorders include Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder, dystonia, and psychostimulant addiction. In addition, these nuclei are essential for the maintenance of normal brain structure.

This second edition that has been updated has undergone extensive revisions so that it can provide the most up-to-date account possible of this important brain region. The new edition has ten entirely new chapters that provide expanded coverage of anatomy and physiology; detailed accounts of latest advances in cellular/molecular mechanisms and cellular/physiological mechanisms; and significant, deeper insights into the behavioral and clinical aspects of basal ganglia function and dysfunction. The editors and authors of the new edition are internationally acclaimed basal ganglia researchers.

The purpose of this article is to synthesize information from a wide variety of sources regarding the behavioral neurobiology of the basal ganglia. This information includes cellular/molecular and cellular/physiological mechanisms, advancements in the understanding of anatomy, as well as behavioral and clinical aspects of function and dysfunction.



  • Written by authors from all over the world who are recognized as leading experts in their fields
  • examines in depth the therapeutically significant effect that the basal ganglia have on a number of different neurological and psychiatric conditions
