The present experiments investigated the effects of excitatory amino acid antagonists, infused into core and shell subregions of the nucleus accumbens, on spatial behavior in the rat. A food-search task was used, in which animals learn a specific pattern of food gathering; duration of each trial (time taken to gather all four pellets) and number of errors (visits to empty holes) were measured. In experiment 1, animals first underwent training, and subsequently were given microinfusions of… CONTINUE READING
