Neuronal projections to the dorsal raphe nucleus (DRN) from the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) and lateral habenula nucleus (LHb) provide the two key routes by which information processed by mood regulatory, cortico-limbic-striatal circuits input into the 5-HT system. These two projections may converge as it appears that both activate local GABAergic neurons to inhibit 5-HT neurons in the DRN. Here we have tested this hypothesis by measuring the effect of stimulation of the mPFC and LHb on t...Expand abstract
