Editors: Erwan Bezard (Lab. Phys. et Physiopath. de la Signal. Cellulaire, Univ. Victor Segalen, CNRS UMR5543 , Bordeaux, France)
Book Description:
The present book on basal ganglia research aims at promoting cross-fertilization and between fields (e.g. between addiction and drug-induced dyskinesia) and between levels of analysis (e.g. between computation and physiology).
