Lesions of the dorsolateral striatum impair the acquisition of a simplified stimulus-response dependent conditional discrimination task.

Abstract

The dorsal striatum has long been thought to be important for some types of learning and memory, especially stimulus-response learning. Recently, we demonstrated that selective lesions of the dorsolateral striatum, but not dorsomedial striatum in rats, retarded the acquisition of two instrumental discrimination tasks thought to require stimulus-response… (More)
