Several studies, using electrical stimulation of parts of the hypothalamus, have shown, that different parts of the hypothalamus yield different behavioural responses upon stimulation. In order to differentiate between stimulation of neuronal cell bodies and passing fibres and to investigate the role of GABA in hypothalamically elicited behaviour, 25 local injections with bicucculline methiodide, a GABA antagonist, (35 ng/0.2 microliter) were performed in the ventral parts of the hypothalamus… CONTINUE READING
