Nucleus accumbens neurons are the targets of glutamatergic inputs. By coupling in situ hybridization for glutamate receptor mRNAs with retrograde transport of Fluoro-Gold, the present study examined the relationship between the distribution patterns of glutamate receptor subtypes/subunits and the output pathways of the nucleus accumbens to the ventral pallidum and ventral tegmental area. Following iontophoretic deposits of Fluoro-Gold into the ventral pallidum, neurons in both the nucleus… CONTINUE READING
