The dorsolateral striatum, and the core and shell of the nucleus accumbens are three major anatomical regions of the striatal complex. The shell is considered as a part of the extended amygdala, and is involved in the control of motivation and reward. The core and the striatum are considered central to sensory motor integration. In this study we compared the responses of these three regions to mild stress and drugs of abuse by measuring extracellular dopamine (DA) concentrations and Fos-like… CONTINUE READING
