Absence of neuron differentiation in the basal nuclei.

DA: 779

Developmental anomaly information

Definition: The basal ganglia (or basal nuclei) are a group of nuclei in the brain interconnected with the cerebral cortex, thalamus and brainstem. Mammalian basal ganglia are associated with a variety of functions: motor control, cognition, emotions, and learning. In modern use the term 'ganglia' is in this instance considered a misnomer; 'ganglion' refers to concentrations of neural nuclei in the periphery only (for example those of the autonomic nervous system), and the term 'basal nuclei' is preferred. Neuron differentiation in the basal ganglia is the process whereby a neuroblast acquires the specialized structural and functional features in the basal ganglia.
