Overview

Brain Dynamics and the Striatal Complex, the first volume in the Conceptual Advances in Brain Research book series, relates dynamic function to cellular structure and synaptic organization in the basal ganglia. The striatum is the largest nucleus within the basal ganglia and therefore plays an important role in understanding structure/function relationships. Areas covered include dopaminergic input to the striatum, organization of the striatum, and the interaction between the striatum and the cerebral cortex.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: The editors of this excellent book cover the way dynamic brain functions are related to the brain's cellular structure and synaptic organization of the basal ganglia. Edited and authored by internationally recognized researcher-clinicians, this book is an exceptionally valuable contribution to this field.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the editors, is to provide a forum in which new and interesting conceptual advances can be presented to a wide readership in a coherent and lucid way. The contributors and editors make their chapters easier to understand in this complicated topic. The editors have succeeded in their goal!
Audience: The intended audience is research psychiatrists, research psychologists, behavioral neurologists, and neuropsychologists. Clinical psychiatrists and neurologists would benefit from reading this book.
Features: The book features 311 pages divided into 14 chapters, including an interesting postlude section and index section. Topics covered include the relationship of substantia nigra dopamine activity to behavior, stimulants and motor-related striatal neuronal activity, synaptology and physiology of neostriatal neurons, and motor and non-motor roles of the cortico-basal ganglia circuitry, to name a few. Each chapter ends with up-to-date and useful references. The book ends with a useful index section.
Assessment: This is an extremely valuable book on behavior and the basal ganglia. Researchers in this area will, without a doubt, benefit from reading and referring to this book.

Booknews
Contains 14 contributions written by psychologists, psychiatrists, neurobiologists, neurophysiologists, anatomists, and others from universities in North America, New Zealand, and Israel addressing the relationship between dynamic function and cellular structure and synaptic organization in the basal ganglia. Topics including the role of the dopaminergic input to the striatum; the cellular, synaptic, and network organization of the striatum; and the mutual interaction between the striatum and cerebral cortex. Includes an edited electronic mail dialogue between some of the chapter authors and other invited discussants seeking consensus on some issues and exploring remaining controversies in the area of brain dynamics.
