Neurons recorded from ventral pallidum/substantia innominata (VP) of the basal forebrain respond to dopaminergic agonists that activate either the D1 or D2 the receptor subtype. Major afferent systems to the VP originate within amygdaloid nuclei (AMN) and the nucleus accumbens (NA). Since both the AMN and the NA are dopaminoceptive, the present study sought to analyze the contribution of these afferent systems to VP responses to dopaminergic agonists. Single VP neurons were… CONTINUE READING
