Motor Loops

The cortico-striato-thalamo-loops (CSTCL) have been implacted in cortical rhythms, cognition, emotions, and motor behaviours. An alteration of their functioning can be at the origin of pathologies including psychiatric or mortor diseases. Here, we are propose to focus on motor loops using an electrophysiological approach in human and animal models of Parkinson’s disease.
This approach is complementary to the imaging one which studiez the Functionality Connectivity (FC) of the CSTCL.
We will discribe the electrophysiological properties of the constitutive structures of the basal ganglia by reporting data from single unit recordings and local field potentials performed in humans and animals.
We will see how a better knowledge of these electrophysiological activities can help us to understand the functioning of these motor loops in normal and pathological situations.
