The role of the basal ganglia in habit formation.

Publication ,  Journal Article
Yin, HH; Knowlton, BJ
Published in: Nature Reviews. Neuroscience
June 2006

Many organisms, especially humans, are characterized by their capacity for intentional, goal-directed actions. However, similar behaviours often proceed automatically, as habitual responses to antecedent stimuli. How are goal-directed actions transformed into habitual responses? Recent work combining modern behavioural assays and neurobiological analysis of the basal ganglia has begun to yield insights into the neural basis of habit formation.
