The basal ganglia and ventral caudate are thought to be a ‘gating station’ for sensory information.
Each function originates from the integrated activity of different cerebral areas and systems (node and networks in terms of neural circuitries), which have their own specific role (regulatory, enhancing, or inhibitory) in cognitive, emotional, and sensorimotor processing. This subdivision predicts precise ACUTE BEHAVIORAL CHANGES RELATED TO IMPAIRMENT OF INSTRUMENTAL FUNCTIONS 17 anatomicomedical correlation (such as in the case of aphasia or neglect) for acute lesions in the areas subserving instrumental functions, and less exact anatomoclinical matching for acute lesions within the network of fundamental and executive functions (such as in the case of depression, anxiety, and apathy).
