Future planning and behavioral modification is thought to require experience-dependent plasticity in neuronal circuits involving the prefrontal cortex, nucleus accumbens and amygdala. Dopamine has been implicated in such plasticity; however, the nature of the adaptive response of dopamine systems to emotionally salient experiences is poorly understood. We determined whether the dopaminergic response to a given stimulus changes after the first exposure to that stimulus and whether this… CONTINUE READING
