Strength-duration characteristics of lateral hypothalamic and periaqueductal gray reward-path neurons.


Behaviorally measured strength-duration curves were plotted for reward related neurons stimulated by electrodes in the lateral hypothalamus (LH) and ventral periaqueductal gray (PG). The average curves for the two groups were only marginally different, suggesting that similar neural populations mediate self-stimulation at the two sites. Analysis of the data… (More)
