Editorial Reviews

Review

This imaginative selection of papers by a group of highly creative researchers is destined to become a landmark in the history of systems neuroscience. The title belies the scope and importance of the problem addressed--forebrain control of behavior and its modifiability by reinforcement--and the contents will stimulate a new generation of workers to provide even more useful insights into the functional organization of circuitry mediating voluntary behavior.

(Larry W. Swanson, Program in Neural, Informational, and Behavioral Sciences, The University of southern California)

This book will appeal to specialists in the study of motor control and to clinicians studying or treating any of the diseases caused by basal ganglia pathology, including Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, Tourette's syndrome, and dyskinesia. While there are several other books on the basal ganglia this one is noteworthy for its admixture of theory, anatomy, and both cellular--and systems- level physiology.

(Steven P. Wise, Laboratory of Neurophysiology, National Institute of Mental Health)

The basal ganglia is one of the theoretically and physiologically most interesting parts of the human brain, and this book summarizes some of the very best and most informed thinking about its function. I would recommend it to anyone as an exemplary mix of physiology and theory, and as a key resource for quickly learning about the best work in this area.

(Richard S. Sutton, GTE Laboratories, Inc.)
