    • Define basal ganglia and describe the parts
    • Describe the main connections and functions
    • Describe the function and the disorders of basal ganglia such as Parkinsonism and tremors
    OBJECTIVES
  2. Basal ganglia
    • The basal ganglia is a collection of gray matter in the cerebrum including the corpus striatum, amygdala
    • and claustrum.
    • Has important connections with other regions of the brain, particularly: thalamus, subthalamic nuclei, red nucleus and substantia nigra
    • Important in coordinating movement.

  39. Function
    • Cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, cerebellum and thalamus
      • motor activity
      • muscle tone
      • organisation of movement
        • What type ? -cerebral cortex
        • How to perform? -basal ganglia+cerebellum
        • Assist in regulation-thalamus
    • Part of extra-pyramidal motor system
    • Facilitate behaviour & movement – required and appropriate
    • Inhibit unwanted & inappropriate
    Function
    • “ Brake hypothesis”
    • The deficits tend to fall into one of two categories:
      • the presence of extraneous unwanted movements
            • OR
      • an absence or difficulty with intended movements.
    • The balance between the cerebellum and the basal ganglia allows smooth, coordinated movement, and a disturbance in either system will show up as movement disorders.
    Function
    • Destruction of primary motor –
      • Unable to perform fine discrete movement
      • But still able to perform crude movement
    • Destruction of corpus striatum –
      • Total paralysis

  41. Disease of basal ganglia
    • Change in muscle tone
    • Abnormal involuntary movement
      • Parkinsonism
      • Effect on the opposite side
        • Degeneration of dopamine-producing cells in substantia nigra-depletion of dopamine in striatum
        • Resting tremor
        • Rigidity – simultaneous contraction of flexors and extensors
        • Bradykinesia = Slowness of movement – brake cannot be released
        • No paralysis, sensory loss, ataxia

      • Huntington’s disease –
        • hereditary disease of unwanted movements. It results from degeneration of the caudate and putamen, and produces continuous dance-like movements of the face and limbs -choreoathetosis
      • Hemiballism -
        • flailing movements of one arm and leg (one-sided), which is caused by damage (i.e., stroke) of the subthalamic nucleus.
