the Caudate Nucleus caterpillar likes to eat ________ for energy. GABA
From outside to in, it is composed of the external capsule (white matter), the lentiform nucleus (gray matter), the internal capsule (white matter), and the caudate nucleus (gray matter). The alternating white and gray matter give it a striated appearance Corpus Striatum
A part of the corpus striatum is imbedded in the white substance of the hemisphere, and is therefore external to the ventricle; it is termed the extraventricular portion, or the _______________ __________. lenticular nucleus
A part of the corpus striatum projects into the ventricle, and is named the intraventricular portion, or the __________ _________. caudate nucleus
has been demonstrated that the caudate is highly involved in learning and memory, especially feedback processing. In general, it has been demonstrated that neural activity will be present within it while an individual is receiving feedback.What am I? Caudate nucleus
It may be dysfunctional in persons with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), in that it may perhaps be unable to properly regulate the transmission of information regarding worrying events or ideas between the thalamus and the orbitofrontal cortex Caudate nucleus
A recent meta-analysis of voxel-based morphometry studies comparing people with OCD and healthy controls found people with OCD have increased grey matter volumes in bilateral lenticular nuclei, extending to the caudate nuclei, while they have while decreased grey matter volumes in bilateral dorsal medial frontal/anterior cingulate gyri.

the lentiform nucleus (putamen, GPI, GPII) and the caudate nucleus (headbodytail) make up the Corpus (body) of the Striae so CORPUS STRIATUM
the Striatum is also called the neostriatum
Components of the neostriatum head of caudate nucleus & Putamen (Neo is the head of CN so putamen jail, Mr. Smith!)
How does the entire cerebrum project to the neostriatum (striatum of head of caudate and putamen)? via glutaminergic fibers
what does the brain eat glutamate
describe the Direct/Movement+ pathway simply (remember the only (-)inhibitory neurotransmitter is GABA) Cerebrum via Glu and SNpc via DA project to Neotriatum. Neo via GABA to GPI and SNpr,(both projectGABA to Th). GP1 stops sending GABA to Thalamus (VA/VL) via GABA. Thalamus (VA/VL) via glutamate (brain's favorite!!) to cerebral cortex. Start movement...
"inhibition of inhibition" is the direct pathway meaning GP1 is already sending GABA to thalamus (VA/VL) to inhibit movement, when suddenly Neostriatum sends GABA to GP1, thus exciting GP1 and stopping its transmission of inhibitory GABA to the Thalamus- now Th is free & shoots Glu to cortex. MOVE!
What structures are "together" in the direct pathway and both receive GABA from Neostriatum? Pars reticulata of SN and GP1, both projecting GABA to the Thalamus' VA/VL
Indirect pathway first difference it is to inhibit movement, so this time the SNpc (Substantia Nigra pars compacta DA) dopaminergic fibers cause inhibition, even though the overall effect on the Neostriatum will be excitatory. Don't ask.
Indirect pathway first part to Neostriatum cortex projects glutaminergic (+)fibers to Neostriatum, but SN-pars compacta projects dopaminergic (-inhib this time) to Neostriatum. Overall effect is EXCITATORY.
What do the members of Neostriatum use to communicate amongst themselves, even though they output GABA? Acetylcholine (used by head of caudate and putamen to talk amongst themselves)
Indirect pathway for STOP movement from Neostriatum: Neo projects GABAergic fibers to GP2 and to STN (subthalamic nucleus), which is glutamate connected to GP1 and SNp.reticulata
Indirect pathway GP2 GP2 has been shushed by GABA from Neostriatum, so it stops its own flow of inhibitory GABA to the Subthalamic nucleus. Now the Subthalamic nucleus, set free, can release glutamate to the .SNp.reticulata and glutamate to GP1
Indirect pathway GP1 and SNp.reticulata After Subthalamic n. released Glu to SNpr and GP1, they both sent GABergic fibers to Thalamus VA/VL.
Indirect pathway Thalamus VA/VL: Thalamus VA/VL nuclei project Glutaminergic neurons to the supplementary and premotor cortex. Excitation of indirect path results in inhibition of motor cortex and paucity of movement.

Cogwheel/lead pipe rigidity of Parkinson's is a staccato movement in direct opposition to clasp-knife rigidity of UMN diseases
Festinating or shuffling gait of Parkinson's an INCREASE in speed
Typical Parkinson's affects GP1 & GP2 responds to L-dopa
Atypical Parkinson's does not affect either GP1 nor GP2 and does not respond to L-dopa
Why can't a pharmacist give dopamine directly to a Parkinson's patient? What meds do pharmacists give? DA doesn't cross blood-brain barrier so we give L-dopa. Anti-cholinergic meds are useful.
Why are anti-cholinergic medicines helpful, along with L-Dopa, for Parkinson's patients? Ach is the comminicator between the Neostriatum members (head of caudate and putamen). When DA diminishes, Ach diminishes to keep sys in balance for awhile.
What surgical treatments for Parkinson's? (4) Dopamine stem cell transplant, Pallidotomy, GP1 pacemakers (since they ARE the pacemakers), and Thalamectomies

Who fixes AF Motors? the Basal Gang
When you can't remember one side of your body exists, you have a lesion to the posterior parietal lobe
why are you going into a caretaking profession? because you didn't get enough love in your childhood. Now discard this one and get moving!
Two lobes of brain associated with the Basal Gang & intention of movement (motor control) Anterior Frontal lobe {AF Motors} and Posterior Parietal lobe (recall lesion)
what happens in a recall lesion to the posterior parietal lobe? The Basal Gang finds out they can't replace the recalled part and it just goes missing - the patient doesn't recognize that part of the body so there is no movement. He could PP on himself and not care because he doesn't recognize/recall that part.
lesion to PP lobe PP on self: patient doesn't recognize/recall that part of himself so it doesn't move. Basal Gang can't fix.
Job of AF lobe motor judgement: {AF Motors} Basal Gang works on AF Motors
The Basal Gang (PP on self and AF Motors) gathers what kind of information in order to prepare INTENTION of movement? visual, auditory, proprioceptive, etc. & information about the relative position of the body in space, the object, and the OVERALL INTENTION OF MOVEMENT
