Substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNr) is an important mesencephalic nucleus that functions as a relay area for basal ganglia output. SNr receives GABAergic inputs from the neostriatum and globus pallidus, and in turn sends projections to a variety of motor areas. Although a large number of studies have focused upon the behavioral functions of basal ganglia dopamine, much less is known about the behavioral functions of SNr GABA. The present studies were undertaken to investigate the role of SNr… CONTINUE READING
