The Basal Ganglia in Sensory Integration
Transcript of The Basal Ganglia in Sensory Integration
Sensory Integration Michaelann Gabriele, MA, OTR/L Is it SI or not? The Circuitry Pathways Neurotransmitters Nuclei Anatomy & Physiology Globus Pallidus Dopamine
1. Cortical-striatal projection
2. Globus Pallidus Interna
3. Striato-nigro-striatal projection
4. Thalamo-cortical projection Caudate Nucleus
Parallel Increased efficiency Prioritization of
behaviors Integrated Hyperkinesia No:
Ballismus Athetosis Dystonia No: Hypokinesia Rigidity Decreased automatic movements Freezing during movement (Yes:) Parallel tracks: Improper attention to stimuli
Inappropriate responses Hypo/Hyper-Responsivity Integration Integrated tracks: Converging messages are
inaccurately shared Example: Trenton Reason for referral: decreased hand strength
decreased visual perceptual skills Tremor Is it cerebellar, basal ganglia, or SI? Clinical Obs: Decreased prop/vest/tactile References
