Cross-species studies of sensorimotor gating of the startle reflex.

Abstract

Sensorimotor gating of the startle reflex can be assessed across species, using similar stimuli to elicit comparable response characteristics. As measured by prepulse inhibition (PPI), gating is reduced in patients with some neuropsychiatric disorders, and in rats after manipulations of limbic cortex, striatum, pallidum, or pontine tegmentum. This limbic… (More)
