The study of the function of the Basal Ganglia is a subject of increasing prominence, not only among neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists and cognitive-scientists but  also for clinical ergonomists, rehabilitation, internal medicine and public health  physicians. This work represents an attempt to bring together diverse scientists who  are interested in a common subject, the Basal Ganglia, nevertheless are situated in  different contexts in the scientific landscape. Basal Ganglia research in the last decade  has been singled out with compelling findings, resulting in new ideas of related  functional networks with other brain structures and internal functions that were not  considered before. Many of these findings come from animal models and brain  functional imaging like fMRI and PET research. These findings have resulted in the  need for new approaches to the study of the Basal Ganglia from animal models to  human brain mapping, translational and clinical practice, therefore, new  interdisciplinary resources regarding Basal Ganglia are needed. All of the contributors   to this volume have published in highly specialized research magazines but want to  pioneer into a multidisciplinary open access work. This volume aims to provide online  access to high-quality research and is an example of leading academics making their  work visible and accessible to diverse audiences around the world.
