Single-unit electrophysiological recording techniques were used to sample the basal activity of antidromically identified nigrostriatal and mesoaccumbens dopamine (NSDA and MADA, respectively) neurons and to examine the responsiveness of these cells to dopamine agonist-induced inhibition of cell firing rate in either chloral hydrate-anesthetized or… CONTINUE READING
