Psychophysical techniques were used to estimate the conduction velocities and refractory periods of reward-relevant fibers in the anterior lateral hypothalamus (ALH) and ventral tegmental area (VTA). Six male rats of the Long-Evans strain served as subjects. Stimulation consisted of trains of pulse pairs delivered to the ALH and VTA; each stimulation site received one pulse from each pair. Collision of antidromic and orthodromic action potentials along the same reward-relevant axons was… CONTINUE READING
