This Special Issue of EJN is dedicated to original papers and reviews that arose from presentations given during for the 13 Meeting of the International Basal Ganglia Society (IBAGS) held in Mérida, Mexico in the spring of 2016. The meeting was organised by José Bargas and his team, with over 200 people attending. It consisted of 10 oral sessions and 2 poster sessions (with wine to encourage lively debate). The meeting was preceded by a Clinical Workshop, a Publishing Workshop and a Basic Science Tutorial Session. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Background and purpose Risk factors for and meaning of basal ganglia calcifications outside Fahr syndrome are poorly understood. We aimed to assess the prevalence of basal ganglia calcifications and t...
Deciding what to do and when to move is vital to our survival. Clinical and fundamental studies have identified basal ganglia circuits as critical for this process. The main input nucleus of the basal...
The basal ganglia are considered vital to action selection - a hypothesis supported by several biologically plausible computational models. Of the several subnuclei of the basal ganglia, the globus pa...
In acute proximal middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion covering the lenticulostriate arteries (LSA), ischemic tolerance of basal ganglia is limited due to supposed lack of collateral supply. However...
Basal ganglia are involved in the control of motor, cognitive and emotional behaviours. The aim of this study is to precisely evaluate patients with basal ganglia focal lesions both with o...
Deep brain stimulation is commonly used for the treatment of movement disorders. Electrode positioning is usually performed under local anesthesia in fully awake patients. The procedure is...
Movement disorders such as Parkinson Disease, dystonia, and tremor are related to abnormalities of part of the brain known as the basal ganglia. Recently, it has been suggested that the ba...
Many patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) are currently being managed with Basal Insulin (BI). However, there is little evidence to support guidelines on dosing adjustments in the...
Spontaneous cerebral hemorrhage is one of the main causes of death and disability all over the world, accounting for 20%-30% of all cerebrovascular diseases. Minimally invasive surgery of ...
A single citation covering several articles of various degrees of specificity or a single citation covering papers or abstracts presented at a meeting. A subject overall refers to a series of articles on a single subject; a congress overall refers to papers presented at a formal local, regional, national, or international gathering; a society overall refers to papers presented at an annual, semi-annual, monthly, weekly, or other meeting of a society, academy, institute, hospital, etc. The publication type may be used for a single citation with or without the additional indexing or cataloging of individual papers. The individual papers, however, are not labeled OVERALL.
Bleeding within the subcortical regions of cerebral hemispheres (BASAL GANGLIA). It is often associated with HYPERTENSION or ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS. Clinical manifestations may include HEADACHE; DYSKINESIAS; and HEMIPARESIS.
A pathological condition caused by impaired blood flow in the basal regions of cerebral hemispheres (BASAL GANGLIA), such as INFARCTION; HEMORRHAGE; or ISCHEMIA in vessels of this brain region including the lateral lenticulostriate arteries. Primary clinical manifestations include involuntary movements (DYSKINESIAS) and muscle weakness (HEMIPARESIS).
Published records of the papers delivered at or issued on the occasion of individual congresses, symposia, and meetings; abstracts of papers delivered at such congresses; reports of the officers and delegates of such congresses; combinations of the foregoing; or proceedings of the conference of a society if they are not limited to matters of internal organization.
Diseases of the BASAL GANGLIA including the PUTAMEN; GLOBUS PALLIDUS; claustrum; AMYGDALA; and CAUDATE NUCLEUS. DYSKINESIAS (most notably involuntary movements and alterations of the rate of movement) represent the primary clinical manifestations of these disorders. Common etiologies include CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS; NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES; and CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA.
