Extracellular recordings were obtained from neurons in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) of urethane-anesthetized rats. Neurons were divided into two types based on the latencies of antidromic activation following electrical stimulation of the nucleus accumbens (NAcc), and on the durations of action potentials. Type A neurons had longer latencies for… CONTINUE READING
