Abstract

Over the past year, a number of conceptual and mathematical models of the basal ganglia and their interactions with other areas of the brain have appeared in the literature. Even though the models each differ in significant ways, several computational principles, such as convergence, recurrence and competition, appear to have emerged as common themes of information processing in the basal ganglia. Simulation studies of these models have provoked new types of questions at the many levels of inquiry linking biophysics to behavior.
