Suppression of exploratory locomotor activity and increase in dopamine turnover following the local application of cis-flupenthixol into limbic projection areas of the rat striatum.

Recent neuroanatomical tracer studies have demonstrated the topography of 'limbic' (A10) projections into the striatum of the rat (see Introduction). The target areas include the nucleus accumbens and the ventromedial part of the neostriatum, whereas the dorsolateral part of the neostriatum does not receive such afferents. Taking this topography into… CONTINUE READING
