Both electrolytic and excitotoxic lesions of nucleus accumbens disrupt latent inhibition of learning in rats.

Abstract:

Evidence indicating a role for the nucleus accumbens in the development of latent inhibition of learning has accumulated. Two experiments were conducted using Wistar rats to investigate this role directly. Experiment 1 used a conditioned emotional response paradigm to assess the effects of discrete electrolytic lesions in the shell region of the nucleus accumbens. Latent inhibition was attenuated by this lesion. In order to determine the contribution made by damage to fibers en passage associ...
