Characterizing the neural substrate of reward with the use of specific brain lesions

Cromwell HC (2021) Characterizing the neural substrate of reward with the use of specific brain lesions. Fakhoury M (Ed.): The Brain Reward System. Neuromethods. 165. Humana, New York, NY doi: 10.1007/978-1-0716-1146-3_3

Summary: This review is focused on experimental lesions and work using the rodent model examining the neural substrates of reward processing. Saporin is listed as a neurotoxin used to target selective neuronal populations with success.
