Topographical organization of the efferent projections of the medial prefrontal cortex in the rat: An anterograde tract‐tracing study with Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin
The purpose of the present investigation was to examine the topographical organization of efferent projections from the cytoarchitectonic divisions of the mPFC (the medial precentral, dorsal anteriorExpand

The patterns of afferent innervation of the core and shell in the “Accumbens” part of the rat ventral striatum: Immunohistochemical detection of retrogradely transported fluoro‐gold
Recent data have emphasized the neurochemically distinct nature of subterritories in the accumbens part of the rat ventral striatum termed the core, shell, and rostral pole. In order to gain a moreExpand

Anatomical substrates of orexin–dopamine interactions: lateral hypothalamic projections to the ventral tegmental area
Dopaminergic projections to the forebrain arising from the mesencephalic ventral tegmentum modulate information processing in cortical and limbic sites. The lateral hypothalamus is crucial for theExpand

Proteomic analysis illuminates a novel structural definition of the claustrum and insula.
The claustrum is a prominent but ill-defined forebrain structure that has been suggested to integrate multisensory information and perhaps transform percepts into consciousness. The claustrum's shapeExpand

Psychobiologic mechanisms of posttraumatic stress disorder.
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an illness of considerable prevalence, often characterized by high morbidity, treatment resistance, and a chronic course. The core symptoms of PTSD includeExpand

Hyperexcitability and epilepsy associated with disruption of the mouse neuronal‐specific K–Cl cotransporter gene
Four genes encode electroneutral, Na+‐independent, K–Cl cotransporters. KCC2, is exclusively expressed in neurons where it is thought to drive intracellular Cl− to low concentrations and shift theExpand

Differential Activation of Orexin Neurons by Antipsychotic Drugs Associated with Weight Gain
Weight gain is one side effect of many antipsychotic drugs (APDs). A small number of lateral hypothalamic/perifornical area (LH/PFA) neurons express the orexins, peptides that are critically involvedExpand

Topography and functional role of dopaminergic projections from the ventral mesencephalic tegmentum to the ventral pallidum
A dopaminergic projection from the ventral tegmental area to the ventral pallidum was identified in the rat using anterograde tract tracing and combined retrograde tracing-immunocytochemistry. TheExpand

Pharmacological characterization of dopamine systems in the nucleus accumbens core and shell
Recent anatomical data suggest that the nucleus accumbens can be parcellated into a core region, related to the caudate-putamen, and a shell region, associated with the limbic system. We have usedExpand

Regionally specific effects of atypical antipsychotic drugs on striatal Fos expression: The nucleus accumbens shell as a locus of antipsychotic action
The mechanisms by which atypical antipsychotic drugs such as clozapine exert therapeutic effects but do not induce extrapyramidal side effects are not clear. We have examined the effects of acuteExpand
