Basal Ganglia Anatomy
Where are the Basal Ganglia?
The Basal Ganglia are a group of structures found deep within the cerebral hemispheres.
What are the Basal Ganglia and what do they do?
The structures generally included in the basal ganglia are the caudate, putamen, and globus pallidus in the cerebrum, the substantia nigra in the midbrain, and the subthalamic nucleus in the diencephalon.
The separate nuclei of the basal ganglia all have extensive roles of their own in the brain, but they also are interconnected with one another to form a network that is thought to be involved in a variety of cognitive, emotional, and movement-related functions. The basal ganglia are best-known, however, for their role in movement.
This portion of our brain is awakening during this current planetary cycle of time in human history. This 12 item panel targets the specific areas of basal ganglia.
Science is investigating the role the basal ganglia in attempts to greater understand the disorders of Parkinsons, Huntington’s, Tourettes’s, Schizophrenia and obsessive compulsive disorder. 12 item panel.
