Recent anatomical literature suggests that dopaminergic projections ascending from the midbrain terminate within the ventral pallidum/substantia innominata (VP/SI). The present investigation evaluated this possibility using standard biochemical and electrophysiologic approaches. Biochemical studies revealed that dopamine and its major metabolites are… CONTINUE READING
