“Beta-band oscillations in basal ganglia-cortical loops have been shown to be linked to motor function in both healthy and pathological states”

Standard

Beta-band oscillations in basal ganglia-cortical loops have been shown to be linked to motor function in both healthy and pathological states (Brown, 2007; Engel and Fries, 2010). As well as coordinating motor activity, for instance when we synchronize our movements to a beat, the basal ganglia including the putamen and the caudate are said to contain specialized timekeeping mechanisms for perceptual timing (Buhusi and Meck, 2005). However, the exact neurophysiological role of beta-band oscillatory activity in the striatum in interval timing is not yet known.
