Over 400 sites in the hypothalami of 270 male CPB/WE-zob rats were electrically stimulated in order to induce fights between males. The localization of electrodes inducing fights seems to differ from the localization of electrodes in which no fights can be induced. The differences in localization were detected and tested by a non-parametric discriminant analysis. The results were plotted by computer in a stereotaxic atlas of the hypothalamus of the CPB/WE strain. The method delimits areas… Expand
Hypothalamic substrates for brain stimulation-induced grooming, digging and circling in the rat
TLDR
The results clearly point to the stimulation site being the most important determinant of the evoked behavioural response of the rat hypothalamus, indicating behavioural specificity does exist within the hypothalamus. Expand
Neural Connections of the Anterior Hypothalamus and Agonistic Behavior in Golden Hamsters
TLDR
Increased density of Fos-immunoreactivity was found in experimental animals within the medial amygdaloid nucleus, ventrolateral hypothalamus, bed nucleus of the stria terminalis and dorsolateral part of the midbrain central gray, suggesting that these areas are integrated in a neural network centered on the anterior hypothalamus and involved in the consummation of offensive aggression. Expand
Aggressive behavior induced by electrical stimulation in the midbrain central gray of male rats
TLDR
It is concluded that in rats central gray and hypothalamus are part of the same neural network mediating intraspecific aggression, and electrical stimulation may activate neural tissue involved in aggressive behavior. Expand
Hypothalamic substrates for brain stimulation-induced attack, teeth-chattering and social grooming in the rat
TLDR
It is suggested that teeth-chattering derives from the simultaneous activation of both attack and flight tendencies, and the underlying neural substrates are not homogeneous, for thresholds vary along the course of individual electrodes. Expand
Comparison of aggressive behaviour induced by electrical stimulation in the hypothalamus of male and female rats.
TLDR
Results show that electrical stimulation in the hypothalamus elicits aggression in both male and female rats, which seems to be derived from the same neural systems and no sex differences could be detected in the sensitivity of these neural systems to stimulation. Expand
Functional identification of an aggression locus in the mouse hypothalamus
TLDR
It is shown that optogenetic, but not electrical, stimulation of neurons in the ventromedial hypothalamus, ventrolateral subdivision (VMHvl) causes male mice to attack both females and inanimate objects, as well as males. Expand
Neural inputs of the hypothalamic “aggression area” in the rat
TLDR
Comparison of the present and earlier findings shows that efferent and afferent connections overlap in many regions to a significant extent, suggesting that reverberating circuits are important in the control of aggressive behavior. Expand
Hypothalamic substrates for brain stimulation-induced patterns of locomotion and escape jumps in the rat
TLDR
It is concluded that a locomotor subroutine subserving different behavioural mechanisms can be activated at many hypothalamic sites, which includes the mesencephalic locomotor region. Expand
Efferent connections of the hypothalamic “aggression area” in the rat
TLDR
It is concluded, that a number of brain sites, that are known to be involved in agonistic behaviour, receive hypothalamic information preferentially from the hypothalamic attack area through diffusely arranged varicose fibres. Expand
Behavioural responses of bicucculline methiodide injections into the ventral hypothalamus of freely moving, socially interacting rats
TLDR
Results are in general agreement with previous electrical stimulation data and show that, in an overlapping pattern, different populations of neurons are involved in the elicitation of digging, gnawing, drinking and attack behaviour in the hypothalamus. Expand

Aggressive behavior induced by electrical stimulation in the midbrain central gray of male rats
TLDR
It is concluded that in rats central gray and hypothalamus are part of the same neural network mediating intraspecific aggression, and electrical stimulation may activate neural tissue involved in aggressive behavior. Expand
The induction of aggressive behaviour by electrical stimulation in the hypothalamus of male rats.
TLDR
Threshold current intensities of attack behaviour can be determined in about 85% of the attack-inducing electrode placements and some of the factors probably involved in the initial decrease in such attack thresholds are discussed. Expand
Hypothalamic map of stimulation current thresholds for inhibition of feeding in rats.
TLDR
The rat hypothalamus was mapped for the purpose of identifying regions at which electrical stimulation caused the feeding behavior of a hungry animal to be inhibited, and results indicated that the inhibitory sites with the lowest current thresholds tended to form a discrete cluster in the lateral part of the ventromedial nucleus and the adjacent neuropil bordering it ventrolaterally. Expand
Hyperreactivity as well as mouse killing is induced by electrical stimulation of the lateral hypothalamus in the rat.
TLDR
The results suggest that excitatory systems exist in the lateral hypothalamus for both attack and reactivity and it is suggested that the attack is a broad-spectrum attack while the hyperreactivity is a component of defensive behavior. Expand
The ventromedial hypothalamus and aggressive behaviour in rats
Male rats were given bilateral lesions in either the anterior or posterior ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH). The intermale aggressive behaviour of these animals within their own territory was observedExpand
An autoradiographic study of the efferent connections of the lateral hypothalamic area in the rat
TLDR
The LHA is well‐suited to integrate inputs from the limbic system and brainstem and to relay them on the one hand to the medial zone of the hypothalamus and on the other to virtually every structure closely associated with the medical forebrain bundle and to the nuclei of origin of the major ascending monoaminergic systems. Expand
Is there evidence for a neural correlate of an aggressive behavioural system in the hypothalamus of the rat?
TLDR
This book argues that there is more to this structure than behavioral systems alone, and anatomical studies reveal many intricate neural networks even within well-defined parts of the hypothalamus, which may eventually appear to serve a distinct function of their own. Expand
Affective behaviour by electrical stimulation in the forebain and brain stem of the cat.
TLDR
The chapter considers experiments carried out in a neutral, unconditioned milieu that is, experiments to which behavioral criteria conform with natural conditions can be applied to avoid the tendency to study “pieces of behavior” rather than a complete “natural” pattern when dealing with cerebral organization. Expand
Attack elicited in rats by electrical stimulation of the lateral hypothalamus.
TLDR
Attack, alarm, and an oral response group were elicited from anatomically differentiated areas, supporting the hypothesis that hypothalamic motivational responses are produced by multiple overlapping substrates, and not by a single undifferentiated substrate. Expand
The efferent connections of the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus of the rat ,
TLDR
The efferent connections of the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus (VMH) of the rat have been examined using the autoradiographic method to identify labeled axons which follow a ventral amygdalopetal route from the lateral hypothalamic area and ventral supraoptic commissure. Expand
