Abstract

The glopus pallidus is a central nucleus of the basal ganglia, pivotal to their function in health and disease. In this issue of Neuron, Mallet et al. (2012) reveal that this structure is more diverse than previously thought, and identify a novel cell type that projects from pallidum to striatum providing massive GABAergic innervation. These findings invite new views on basal ganglia processing.
