  • To assess the role of nucleus accumbens (NAcc) during approach to novel sexually arousing stimuli, we evaluated NAcc single-unit activity in male rats during the presentation of vaginal estrus extracted from novel and familiar female rats. After control stimulus presentations, animals were exposed to two estrous presentations from a female in the same or separate colony. A significantly larger proportion of units increased firing rate in the novel (11/32; 34%) than the familiar condition (2/28… CONTINUE READING
