The distribution of electrical self-stimulation foci within the amygdala (AMY) was mapped using movable electrodes in rats. Each barpress delivered a 0.4-s train of cathodal rectangular pulses of fixed intensity and duration and variable frequency. The rate-frequency function was recorded for successive dorsoventral sites. Self-stimulation was found… CONTINUE READING
