The behavioral responses of rats to uni- or bilateral microinjections of the octapeptide cholecystokinin (CCK-8) into the left and/or right or both nucleus accumbens (NA) or amygdalae were studied. There were two main findings of effects of microinjections of CCK-8 into NA. First, bilateral injections of CCK-8 into NA dose-dependently decreased the horizontal activity. The second more important finding was that CCK-8 at a specific dose (0.01 micrograms) injected into the right NA increased the… CONTINUE READING
