Access from EThOS:
Medium Spiny projection neurons, the sole output neurons of the striatum, are connected by GABAergic synapses. Such connections are classically assumed to be inhibitory, thus it has been suggested that one of the main functions of the striatum is to detect and classify cortical representations of sensory events to trigger appropriate motor responses through a winner-take-all network dynamic.
