Fos-like immunoreactivity in forebrain regions following self-stimulation of the lateral hypothalamus and the ventral tegmental area.


According to the descending-path hypothesis, the direct excitation of descending fibers linking the lateral hypothalamus (LH) and ventral tegmental area (VTA) contributes to the rewarding effect produced by electrical stimulation of the medial forebrain bundle (MFB). To visualize forebrain neurons activated by stimulation of both the LH and VTA, Fos-like… (More)
