A comprehensive, biologically inspired neurocomputational model of action selection in the Basal Ganglia allows simulation of dopamine induced aberrant learning in Parkinsonian subjects. In particular, the model simulates the Alternate Finger Tapping motor task as an indicator of bradykinesia.
Model Type: Connectionist Network
Region(s) or Organism(s): Basal ganglia
Cell Type(s): Neostriatum medium spiny direct pathway GABA cell
Simulation Environment: MATLAB
