Regulatory impairments following selective 6-OHDA lesions of the neostriatum.

Abstract:

6-Hydroxydopamine lesions of the ventrolateral (VLC) but not anteromedial (AMC) caudate-putamen in rats resulted in a greater post-operative reduction in body weight and water intake than seen in animals with sham lesions.
