The prelimbic/medial orbital areas (PL/MO) of the rat prefrontal cortex are connected to substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNR) through three main circuits: a direct nucleus accumbens (NAcc)-SNR pathway, an indirect NAcc-SNR pathway involving the ventral pallidum (VP) and the subthalamic nucleus (STN), and a disynaptic cortico-STN-SNR pathway. The present study was undertaken to characterize the effect of PL/MO stimulation on SNR cells and to determine the contribution of these different… CONTINUE READING
