Rewarding hypothalamic brain stimulation is thought to depend on trans-synaptic activation of high-threshold (and thus rarely directly depolarized by rewarding stimulation) dopaminergic fibers of the medial forebrain bundle. We used in vivo microdialysis and high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with electrochemical or fluorometric detection to investigate the concurrent release of dopamine and glutamate in the nucleus accumbens septi and in the ventral tegmental area, as a function of… 
Modulation of brain stimulation reward and locomotor activity by ionotropic glutamate receptors of the tail of the ventral tegmental area
TLDR
A role for the tVTA as a main inhibitory component of DA-dependent behavioral measures is supported, and it is suggested that tVta NMDA receptors that modulate reward are most likely expressed on t VTA afferent terminals.
Increase in accumbal dopaminergic transmission correlates with response cost not reward of hypothalamic stimulation
TLDR
The results were interpreted in terms of a model in which hypothalamic ICSS reward is largely dependent on non-dopaminergic mechanisms, with accumbal DA transmission being strongly dependent on the costs versus benefits of ongoing behavior.
Deep brain stimulation of the medial forebrain bundle elevates striatal dopamine concentration without affecting spontaneous or reward-induced phasic release
TLDR
DBS induces an increase in overall ambient concentration of DA, but spontaneous or reward-associated more rapid, phasic DA dynamics are not enhanced, and this knowledge improves understanding of how DBS affects brain function and may help improve future therapies for depressive symptoms.
Medial forebrain bundle stimulation evokes endocannabinoid-mediated modulation of ventral tegmental area dopamine neuron firing in vivo
TLDR
This study indicates that stimulation of the MFB evokes an endocannabinoid-mediated short-term modulation of DA neuron activity, suggesting that endoc cannabinoidoids might play an important role in the mechanisms underlying the rewarding properties of MFB stimulation.
Opposite modulation of brain stimulation reward by NMDA and AMPA receptors in the ventral tegmental area
TLDR
A negative correlation between the magnitude of the attenuation effect of NBQX and the enhancement effect of PPPA is found and suggests that glutamate acts on different receptor sub-types, most likely located on different VTA neurons, to modulate reward.
Role of Dopamine Tone in the Pursuit of Brain Stimulation Reward
TLDR
The results reported here imply that increased dopamine tone boosts reward pursuit by acting at or beyond the output of the circuitry that temporally and spatially summates theoutput of the directly stimulated neurons underlying ICSS.
Hypothalamic Neurotensin Projections Promote Reward by Enhancing Glutamate Transmission in the VTA
TLDR
Results suggest that NT release from the LH into the VTA activates Nts1, thereby potentiating NMDA-mediated EPSCs and promoting reward.
Inhibitory Input from the Lateral Hypothalamus to the Ventral Tegmental Area Disinhibits Dopamine Neurons and Promotes Behavioral Activation
TLDR
It is shown that the GABAergic component of the LH-VTA pathway supports positive reinforcement and place preference, while the glutamatergic component mediates place avoidance, and photoactivation of these projections modulates other behaviors, such as social interaction and perseverant investigation of a novel object.
Brain Rewarding Stimulation Reduces Extracellular Glutamate Through Glial Modulation in Medial Prefrontal Cortex of Rats
TLDR
Findings indicate a bidirectional regulation of extracellular GLU by prefrontal glial cells associated with rat ICSS behavior, and reveal that glial modulation of GLU neurochemistry in the medial PFC contributes to rewarding as well as aversive behaviors in rats.
Dynamic changes in dopamine tone during self-stimulation of the ventral tegmental area in rats
TLDR
The results resemble those obtained by means of microdialysis in rats receiving LH stimulation but differed from the prior FSCV data, and the stimulation-induced peak in DA tone could be restored by a 30 min rest period, a manipulation that was ineffective previously in restoring the F SCV measure of phasic release.

Electrical stimulation of reward sites in the ventral tegmental area increases dopamine transmission in the nucleus accumbens of the rat
TLDR
Results add to the growing body of evidence linking changes in extracellular DA in the mesolimbic DA system with both brain stimulation reward and the conditioned and unconditioned rewarding effects of biologically relevant stimuli.
Differential effect of self-stimulation on dopamine release and metabolism in the rat medial frontal cortex, nucleus accumbens and striatum studied by in vivo microdialysis
TLDR
The results indicate that self-stimulation of the MFB preferentially activates the mesocorticolimbic DA systems, thereby bilateral increases in the release of DA and its metabolism being produced in their terminal regions, the MFC and NAC.
Dissociation of dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens from intracranial self-stimulation
TLDR
Dopamine may be a neural substrate for novelty or reward expectation rather than reward itself, and evoked dopamine release is actually diminished during intracranial self-stimulation.
increased dopamine and serotonin metabolism in rat nucleus accumbens produced by intracranial self-stimulation of medial forebrain bundle as measured by in vivo microdialysis
TLDR
Findings indicate that self-stimulation of the MFB in rats induces increases in both DA and serotonin activities in the NAC, which may be involved in mediating self- Stimulating the medial forebrain bundle.
The role of dopamine in intracranial self-stimulation of the ventral tegmental area
TLDR
The role of dopaminergic neurons in brain stimulation reward produced by electrical stimulation of the ventral tegmental area (VTA) was investigated in the rat, ruling out lesion-induced performance deficits as being responsible for the decreases in ICS rates across the wide range of current intensities that occurred after the ipsilateral lesions.
Dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens by hypothalamic stimulation-escape behavior
TLDR
DA can be released during negative reinforcement when an animal's behavior is reinforced by escape from lateral or medial hypothalamic stimulation, rather than the aversiveness of automatic stimulation.
The effect of uptake inhibition on dopamine release from the nucleus accumbens of rats during self- or forced stimulation of the medial forebrain bundle: A microdialysis study
TLDR
Similar neurochemical changes observed during self- and forced stimulation of the MFB suggest that the operant lever-pressing behavior itself did not influence DA release in the NAC, and that self-stimulation activates the mesolimbic DA system.
The pharmacology of mesolimbic dopamine neurons: a dual-probe microdialysis study in the ventral tegmental area and nucleus accumbens of the rat brain
TLDR
The results provide evidence for localization of GABAA, GABAB NMDA, non-NMDA, and cholinergic receptors on dopamine neurons in the VTA and suggest that dopamine neurons on the ventral tegmental area of the rat brain are tonically inhibited by GABA and dopamine by acting on GAB AA, and D2 receptors.
Microinjections of phencyclidine (PCP) and related drugs into nucleus accumbens shell potentiate medial forebrain bundle brain stimulation reward
TLDR
PCP’s properties as a dopamine uptake inhibitor and as an NMDA receptor antagonist each appear capable of producing reward-related actions in this brain region.
Regulation of the mesocorticolimbic dopamine system by glutamic acid receptor subtypes.
TLDR
It is argued that glutamate is a regulatory transmitter of A10 dopamine neurons, and that the NMDA receptor subtype modulates neurons projecting to the prefrontal cortex whereas the kainate sub type modulates mesoaccumbens neurons.
