Researchers in the Brain Mechanism for Behavior Unit stimulated the brains of mice bred to model Parkinson’s disease, finding that their striatal neurons reacted differently to different patterns of input. The results may shed light on how brain activity patterns become altered in Parkinson’s and lead to the manifestation of its signature symptoms.
