Like primary reinforcers, the anticipation of reward ought to affect neurochemical release in brain regions, such as the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC), which are associated with appraisal processes. To assess the neurochemical changes associated with anticipation, rats were exposed to the pairing of auditory (60-dB white noise), visual, and olfactory cues with the daily presentation of a palatable snack (Cue Relevant group). Rats of a second group were similarly trained, but for a 2-week… CONTINUE READING
