Lateral striatal neurons that fire phasically in relation to active movement of the contralateral forelimb (determined via daily sensorimotor examination) were studied during acquisition of cued lever pressing. Rats were trained to lift the contralateral forepaw from the floor to press a lever in the presence of a tone. The tone was presented 70 times per(More)
Cocaine's effects on striatal neurons related to vertical head movement were studied during a task requiring vertical head movement. The proportion of long-distance head movements was increased by low doses but decreased by the high dose, which produced stereotypic head bobbing. At all doses, normally low firing rates related to movement were elevated to a(More)
Neuronal discharges related to acoustic conditional stimuli and locomotive behavioral responses of 152 anterior and medial dorsal (MD) thalamic and cingulate cortical single-units sorted from multi-unit activity were recorded as rabbits performed in a discriminative avoidance task. The goals were: (1) to document the single-unit constituents of multi-site,(More)
To investigate striatal mechanisms underlying the acute effects of stimulants on motor behavior, firing rates (FRs) of striatal neurons related specifically to vertical head movement were studied exclusively during vertical head movements. Precocaine FRs were recorded after intraperitoneal saline injection (time 1; T1), and rats performed conditioned(More)
Single neurons (n = 76) were recorded in the nucleus accumbens septi (NAS) of rats self-stimulating the ipsilateral medial forebrain bundle (MFB) at the level of the ventral tegmental area (VTA). Responses evoked by rewarding trains of stimulus pulses fell into five categories. The first category (40% of the sample) was characterized by a single discharge(More)
Building relationships with internal and external technical support staff can be an important factor in developing an effective and successful Help Desk. Strong relationships improve the efficiency of information flow, thereby improving the quality of support provided to customers.
