A team of researchers led by Prof. Atsushi Nambu at the National Institute for Physiological Sciences, the National Institute of Natural Sciences, has used Japanese macaques to demonstrate how the basal ganglia communicate motor information when reaching for a target with a signal. These results indicate that reducing synchronization activity may improve symptoms such as Parkinson's disease and may lead to the development of effective treatments.
