Cholecystokinin (CCK) is co-localized with dopamine (DA) in portions of the mesolimbic system, where it may facilitate the function of DA through the CCKA receptor subtype. DA has been implicated in the acquisition of conditioned incentive learning, raising the possibility of a role for endogenous CCK in this learning process. This hypothesis was tested… CONTINUE READING
