Latent inhibition consists of a decrement in conditioning to a stimulus as a result of its prior non-reinforced pre-exposure. Based on evidence pointing to the involvement of the hippocampus and the nucleus accumbens in latent inhibition disruption, it has been proposed that latent inhibition depends on the integrity of the subicular input to the nucleus accumbens. Since fibers originating in the subiculum and destined for the nucleus accumbens run through the fimbria-fornix, we assessed the… CONTINUE READING
