Description: Neuroscience Seminar Series

Understanding how the activity of brain cells and neuronal circuits gives rise to complex human behavior and thought lies at the forefront of perceptual and cognitive neuroscience. The basal ganglia are a set of forebrain nuclei that, together with the cerebral cortex, play a role in many neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases that result in disordered perception, cognition and action. In this seminar, Dr. Basso shall describe their recent experiments exploring the role of the basal ganglia in cognitive processes such as memory and action choice. Their results show that understanding fundamental brain mechanisms of cognitive processing may hold the key to unlocking the causes of enigmatic symptoms seen in diseases such as Parkinson's disease.
