Corticostriatal neurons linking the prefrontal cortex and the nucleus accumbens connect the terminal fields of the ascending mesotelencephalic dopamine neurons and may potentially mediate cortical dopaminergic modulation of subcortical dopamine transmission. In our attempt to develop a brain slice preparation that maximally preserves this prefrontal accumbens pathway for in vitro electrophysiological studies, knowledge of the complete course of its projection is critical.
