The relevance of the striatum for cognitive control processes is increasingly appreciated. The striatum is not a homogenous structure but instead is compartmentalized into the ‘matrix’ and ‘striosomes’. Here, we discuss experiments on a model disease of striosomal dysfunction and provide evidence for the importance of the striatal microstructure for cognitive control in humans.
