Lesions of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) in the rat are known to cause anticipated movements in behavioral tasks requiring a preparatory period before the execution of externally cued conditioned movements. In the present study, we describe the effects of lesions of the pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN), a structure located on the outflow of the STN to lower brainstem and spinal motor nuclei, on the anticipatory responding caused by a unilateral lesion of the STN in a delayed sensorimotor task… CONTINUE READING
