The performance of goal-directed actions relies on an animal's previous knowledge of the outcomes or consequences that result from its actions. Additionally, a sensorimotor learning process linking environmental stimuli with actions influences instrumental performance by selecting actions for additional evaluation. These distinct decision-making processes in rodents depend on separate subregions of the dorsal striatum. Whereas the posterior dorsomedial striatum (pDMS) is required for the… CONTINUE READING
