Basal Ganglia

FUNCTIONS OF BASAL GANGLIA PLANNING & PROGRAMMING –> Discharge starts even before commencement of movement. EXECUTION OF MOTOR TIMING, INTENSITY & SEQUENCES –> Basal Ganglia gets input from cortex projects back to cortex (Prefrontal, premotor, Supplementary motor area).┬áThese Corticospinal & Corticobulbar neurons influence Proximal & Distal limb. MUSCLE TONE –> Inhibits tone, decreases stretch reflexContinue reading “Basal Ganglia”
