Lecture Peter Strick (U. Pittsburgh): Basal Ganglia Circuits with the Cerebral Cortex and the Cerebellum

Given the relevance of the cerebellar-basal ganglia-corticel loop for speech and language processing, Peter Hagoort is happy to have a lecture of the world leading expert on the topic of the role of these areas at MPI.

Prof. Dr. Peter Strick is:

  • Distinguished Professor & Chair of Neurobiology, University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine (primary appoint.)
  • Thomas Detre Endowed Chair in Neuroscience
  • Professor, Depts. of Neurological Surgery, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Psychiatry (second. appoints.)
  • Co-Director of the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (CNUP)
  • Director, Systems Neuroscience Institute (SNI)
  • Director, Neuroscience Imaging Center (NIC)
  • Scientific Director, University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute (UPBI)

Dr. Strick's research focuses on 4 major topics:

i) the motor areas of the cerebral cortex- their involvement in movement generation and control, as well as in motor skill acquisition and retention;
ii) the motor, cognitive and affective functions of the basal ganglia and cerebellum;
iii) the neural basis for the mind-body connection; and
iv) unraveling the complex neural networks that comprise the central nervous system.
