Basal ganglia: Function and dysfunction

Basal ganglia: Function and dysfunction

This research direction aims at understanding the function of basal ganglia pathways. Our computational models implement multiple basal ganglia pathways and update their impact by learning rules. This allows to also address changes of pathway impacts by modeling the changes of factors in those learning rules.
