In this study, we unraveled the circuit and network connectivity of the rodent external globus pallidus (GPe), both in the healthy animals and a parkinson's disease model. We also employed multiple stimulation types (electrical and optogenetic), as well as fMRI modalities (evoked-fMRI and functional connectivity analyses) to provide an exhaustive analysis of this dynamic brain nucleus.
