This circuit included an ascending component from the ventromedial nucleus to the anterior hypothalamus and a descending component from the anterior hypothalamus to the midbrain central gray substance. The present study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that the anterior hypothalamus plays a central role in the organization of this functional pathway. In the first part of this study… CONTINUE READING
