Using diffusion spectrum imaging and fiber technology, CMU neuroscientists have identified a new way that several brain areas communicate in the striatum. The findings illustrate structural and functional connections that allow the brain to use reinforcement learning to make spatial decisions. This discovery will impact learning and could lead to improved treatments for Parkinson's disease.
