Behavioral tests show that noncontingent stimulation of self-stimulation sites in the lateral hypothalamus increases escape and avoidance from central or peripheral stimuli. The present study investigated the possibility that this phenomenon was mediated by an excitatory connection from the lateral hypothalamus to neurons in aversive regions of the brainstem. Most of the 24 rats participated in two phases of the experiment: unit recording under anesthesia ; and behavioral tests with… CONTINUE READING
