Have a look at Fig. 2 in:
Albin, Roger L.; Young, Anne B.; Penney, John B. The functional anatomy
of basal ganglia disorders. Trends in Neurosciences. 1989; Vol 12,
Issue: 10, pp. 366-375
And maybe this (just a guess - I cannot access it):
Penney JB Jr, Young AB. Speculations on the functional anatomy of basal
Annu Rev Neurosci. 1983;6:73-94.
