Diagram of striatal afferent projections from cortex

Diagram demonstrating the functional organization of A. frontal cortex and B. striatal afferent projections. (A) Schematic illustration of the functional connections linking frontal cortical brain regions. (B) Organization of cortical and subcortical inputs to the striatum. In both (A) and (B), the colors denote functional distinctions. Blue: motor cortex, execution of motor actions; green: premotor cortex, planning of movements; yellow: dorsal and lateral prefrontal cortex, cognitive and executive functions; orange: orbital prefrontal cortex, goal-directed behaviors and motivation; red: medial prefrontal cortex, goal-directed behaviors and emotional processing. (Reproduced with permission from Haber, 2003fig 3.)

Schematic showing anatomy of the striatum (a). Representative lateral (b) and medial (c) illustrations of cortical areas and their connections to the striatum. The colored segment in the striatum represents the area of the striatum receiving projections from the cortical area of the same color. Abbreviations: AC, anterior cingulate cortex; dlPFC, dorsal lateral prefrontal cortex; FEF, frontal eye field; lOFC, lateral orbitofrontal cortex; MC, motor cortex; PPC, posterior parietal cortex; SMA, supplementary motor area; SSC, somatosensory cortex. Compiled from Alexander et al. (1986). (Reproduced  from Utter and Basso, 2008Fig.2)
