Nucleus accumbens (NAC) dopamine may play a role in attentional and executive processes, as it modulates cortico-limbic inputs, including afferents from the prefrontal cortex. The present study examined the role of NAC dopamine D1 and D2 receptors in visual attentional processes and response control in rats as assessed in the five-choice serial reaction time task (5CSRT). Rats were trained to detect the location of brief (0.5 s) visual targets presented randomly in an array of five apertures to… CONTINUE READING
