The time course of the hyperactivity that follows lesions or temporary inactivation of the fimbria-fornix.

Abstract:

Lesions of the hippocampus or the fimbria-fornix produce a pronounced hyperactivity in rats. This effect is thought to be due to the loss of glutamatergic hippocampal inputs to the nucleus accumbens, although the mechanisms involved remain unclear. It has been suggested that the hyperactivity is due to changes in accumbens dopamine receptors, possibly involving the gradual development of denervation supersensitivity. Consistent with this possibility, the present study found that fimbria-forni...
