Topographically organized dopaminergic projections from the extrapyramidal structures of the ventral mesencephalon (substantia nigra and ventral tegmental area) to the dorsal (body of caudate-putamen) and ventral (anterior-ventral caudate, nucleus accumbens, tuberculum olfactorium) striatum subserve sensorimotor integration in the rat. Selective depletion of DA impairs the animal's ability to integrate sensory input with motor output; in the dorsal striatum the exteroceptive sensory input and… CONTINUE READING
