Motivation dependence of brain self-stimulation in the pigeon.

Abstract

Several brain sites in the pigeon were identified as maintaining electrical brain self-stimulation. Depending on the site, stimulus currents yielding maximal responding varied from 20 to 160 μA. A high proportion of the sites only yielded self-stimulation behaviour if the subjects were deprived of food; when the birds were at full weight there was only one… (More)
