The Basal Ganglia V is derived from the proceedings of the fifth Triennial Meeting of the International Basal Ganglia Society (IBAGS) that took place in May 1995. As the editors comment in their preface, neither a major earthquake nor a terrorist attack in the Tokyo, Japan, subway system, both of which occurred shortly before the conference, deterred the participants from several days of stimulating scientific interchange. The quantity and quality of the scientific material discussed is evident in this volume.
