It is generally hypothesized that stereotypic behaviours result from disruption of coordinated function within the basal ganglia (henceforth the ’Basal Ganglia (BG) Pathways Hypotheses’) and/or between the cortex and basal ganglia (henceforth the ’Cortico-Striatal-Thalamo-Cortical (CSTC) Circuits Hypotheses‘): ideas largely influenced by prominent theories of normal basal ganglia function, drug-induced SBs, and research on conditions like Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Tourette’s syndrome, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. The anatomy and function of the cortico-basal ganglia systems that inform these hypotheses is described in this Supplementary Material.
