Afferent projections to points of self-stimulation (SS) in the medial prefrontal cortex (MPC) of the rat were studied using the horseradish peroxidase (HRP) technique. Intracranial microinjections of HRP (30%) were delivered at the same stereotaxic points at which the electrodes eliciting SS were located. Retrogradely transported HRP labeled neurons in different thalamic, hypothalamic, mesencephalic and pontine areas. In the thalamus, labeled neurons were found in the dorsomedial, anteromedial… CONTINUE READING
