Quantitative analysis of the effect of lesions of the subthalamic nucleus on intertemporal choice: further evidence for enhancement of the incentive value of food reinforcers
TLDR
The STN-lesioned group showed a flatter slope of the indifference function (implying higher instantaneous reinforcer values) than the sham-LESioned group; the intercepts did not differ between the groups.
Effect of orexin-B-saporin-induced lesions of the lateral hypothalamus on performance on a progressive ratio schedule
TLDR
The results indicate that OxSap lesions of the LHA disrupted food-reinforced responding on the progressive ratio schedule, and it is suggested that this disruption was brought about by a change in non-motivational (motor) processes.
uantitative analysis of performance on a progressive-ratio schedule : ffects of reinforcer type , food deprivation and acute treatment with 9-tetrahydrocannabinol ( THC )
Rats’ performance on a progressive-ratio schedule maintained by sucrose (0.6 M, 50 l) and corn oil (100%, 25 l) reinforcers was assessed using a model derived from Killeen’s (1994) theory of
Effects of amisulpride and aripiprazole on progressive-ratio schedule performance: comparison with clozapine and haloperidol
TLDR
Interpretation based on Killeen's model suggests that aripiprazole does not share clozapine’s ability to enhance reinforcer value, and two further atypical antipsychotics are examined, which impaired motor performance in rats.
A clozapine-like effect of cyproheptadine on progressive ratio schedule performance
TLDR
In agreement with previous findings, haloperidol impaired motor performance and reduced the incentive value of the reinforcer, and chlordiazepoxide’s effect on a is consistent with its food intake-enhancing effect.
Deep Brain Stimulation of the Subthalamic Nucleus Modulates Reward-Related Behavior: A Systematic Review
TLDR
It is found that STN-DBS decreases reward seeking in the majority of experiments, and it is argued that optogenetic-assisted circuit dissection could yield important insight into the effects of the STN on motivated behavior in health and disease.

Effect of quinolinic acid-induced lesions of the nucleus accumbens core on performance on a progressive ratio schedule of reinforcement: implications for inter-temporal choice
TLDR
The results suggest that destruction of the AcbC impairs response capacity but does not alter the efficacy of food reinforcers.
Enhanced Food-Related Motivation after Bilateral Lesions of the Subthalamic Nucleus
TLDR
Bilateral fiber-sparing lesions of the STN in rats reduced the time required to eat a standard number of food reward pellets, without affecting food intake, and altered performance on a number of behavioral measures consistent with enhanced motivation for food.
Effects of quinolinic acid-induced lesions of the orbital prefrontal cortex on inter-temporal choice: a quantitative analysis
TLDR
The results indicate that lesions of the OPFC can alter inter-temporal choice, either promoting or suppressing "impulsive choice", depending upon the relative sizes and delays of the two choice alternatives.
Effects of quinolinic acid-induced lesions of the nucleus accumbens core on inter-temporal choice: a quantitative analysis
TLDR
The results confirm that lesions of the AcbC promote preference for smaller, earlier reinforcers and suggest that this reflects an effect of the lesion on the rate of delay discounting.
Subthalamic Nucleus Lesions Enhance the Psychomotor-Activating, Incentive Motivational, and Neurobiological Effects of Cocaine
TLDR
It is suggested that engagement of the STN serves to dampen the psychomotor-activating and incentive motivational effects of drugs of abuse, and may serve as a novel target for therapeutic interventions aimed at treating drug dependence.
Comparison of the effects of clozapine and 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) on progressive ratio schedule performance: evidence against the involvement of 5-HT1A receptors in the behavioural effects of clozapine
TLDR
The results confirm previous findings on the effects of clozapine and 8-OH-DPAT on progressive ratio schedule performance and indicate an increase in reinforcer efficacy.
Comparison of the effects of clozapine, haloperidol, chlorpromazine and d-amphetamine on performance on a time-constrained progressive ratio schedule and on locomotor behaviour in the rat
TLDR
The quantitative analysis of progressive ratio schedule performance may provide a useful adjunct to existing methods for separating effects of drugs on motivational and motor processes.
The Influence of Subthalamic Nucleus Lesions on Sign-Tracking to Stimuli Paired with Food and Drug Rewards: Facilitation of Incentive Salience Attribution?
TLDR
It is speculated that the subthalamic nucleus is part of a neural system that moderates the amount of incentive salience attributed to reward-related stimuli, which may help mitigate the development of compulsive behavioral disorders, such as addiction.
Bilateral Lesions of the Subthalamic Nucleus Induce Multiple Deficits in an Attentional Task in Rats
TLDR
The results suggest that STN lesions have multiple, dissociable effects on attentional performance, including discriminative deficits, impulsivity and perseverative behaviour, which is consistent with a hypothesized role of the STN in recent models of basal ganglia function in areaction selection and inhibition.
