The basal ganglia are associated with a variety of functions including: control of voluntary motor movements, procedural learning, routine behaviors or "habits" such as teeth grinding, eye movements, cognition, and emotion.

Epistasis is the phenomenon where the effect of one gene (locus) is dependent on the presence of one or more 'modifier genes', i.e. the genetic background. Originally the term meant that the phenotypic effect of one gene is masked by a different gene (locus).[1] Thus, epistatic mutations have different effects in combination than individually. The gene for total baldness is epistatic to those for blond hair or red hair. The hair-colour genes are hypostatic to the baldness gene.
