Previous behavioral and acute electrophysiological data have lead researchers to speculate that the nucleus accumbens integrates limbic, reward and motor information. The present study examined the behavioral correlates to single unit activity of the nucleus accumbens and surrounding ventral striatum as a means of evaluating the integrative functioning of this region in an awake animal. Medial ventral striatum (mVS) activity was recorded as rats completed multiple trials on an eight arm radial… CONTINUE READING
