The present investigation of connections in the basal ganglia of the lizard Gekko gecko has revealed that the efferent projections of the nucleus accumbens are far more elaborate than previously thought. The projections reach not only the ventral pallidum, the preoptic area, the lateral hypothalamic area and the ventral tegmental area, but also the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis, the dorsomedial thalamic nucleus, the substantia nigra and the retrorubral dopaminergic cell group.
