A Corrigendum on
Advances in non-dopaminergic pharmacological treatments of Parkinson's disease

by Stayte, S., and Vissel, B. (2014). Front. Neurosci. 8:254. doi: 10.3389/fnins.2014.00254

Figure 1 of the article by Stayte and Vissel (2014) contained an error during editing, which we now rectify. In the original Figure 1, the blue arrows representing the GABAergic projections to the LGP originate from the cerebral cortex. However, the blue arrows should be originating from the striatum. We include the updated version of Figure 1 with this correction.

Figure 1. Basal ganglia dysfunction in PD. Diagram representing the normal function of the basal ganglia (Left), the changes occurring in PD (Right), and the site of primary action of therapeutic targets discussed in this review (numbered). Arrows represent the major neurotransmitters of glutamate (green), GABA (blue) and dopamine (red). Relative thickness of the arrows indicates level of activity of neurotransmitter. SNpc, substantia nigra pars compacta; SNr, substantia nigra reticulata; STN, subthalamic nucleus; MGP, medial globus pallidus; LGP, lateral globus pallidus.
