The effect of electric footshocks and of exposure to environmental stimuli paired with electrical shocks upon the dopaminergic activity in various cortical and limbic areas of the rat were evaluated by measuring dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) levels in these areas. In animals exposed to a 20 min electric footshock session DOPAC concentrations were significantly increased in the antero-medial and sulcal frontal cortices, olfactory tubercle, nucleus accumbens and amygdaloid complex (by 66, 37… CONTINUE READING
