The medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) and nucleus accumbens (NAc) are both integral components of the corticobasal ganglia-thalamic circuitry that regulates addiction-related behaviors. However, the role of afferent inputs from mPFC to NAc in these behaviors is unclear. To address this, we used a Cre-recombinase-dependent viral vector approach to express(More)
Early life experiences affect the formation of neuronal networks, which can have a profound impact on brain function and behavior later in life. Previous work has shown that mice exposed to excessive sensory stimulation during development are hyperactive and novelty seeking, and display impaired cognition compared with controls. In this study, we addressed(More)
