Regions of the prefrontal cortex that project to the nucleus accumbens in the rat receive input from midline thalamic and basal amygdaloid nuclei which also project to the same striatal region as their prefrontal cortical target. For example, the prelimbic cortex projects to the medial nucleus accumbens, and receives input from the paraventricular thalamic nucleus and the parvicellular basal amygdala. These latter two areas also project to the medial nucleus accumbens. It has been shown that… CONTINUE READING
