PMID-16794848[9] Bilateral basal ganglia activation associated with sensorimotor adaptation.

  • shows that the basal ganglia is highly active durnig the initial stages of sensory motor adaptation (cursor rotation).
    • specifically: "We observed activation in the right globus pallidus and putamen, along with the right prefrontal, premotor and parietal cortex," to support spatial cognitive processes of adaptation.. and .. "activation in the left globus pallidus and caudate nucleus, along with the left premotor and supplementary motor cortex, which may support the sensorimotor processes of adaptation"
  • human subjects in a 3T MRI scanner; BOLD signal.
