 +====== SNr - Substantia Nigra, pars reticulata: ======
 +The SNr is now known to be histologically very similar to the Globus Pallidus, internal segment (GPi) and, like the GPi, is a major output nucleus of the basal ganglia (BG). And, also like GPi, it is made up almost exclusively of tonically active projecting GABAergic cells. ​ As such, SNr provides tonic inhibition of thalamic relay cells (TRCs) which can be disinhibited by BG gating signals. ​ SNr also projects to the superior colliculus (SC) where it also provides tonic inhibition.
