Jenrette TA, Logue JB, Horner KA (2019) Lesions of the patch compartment of dorsolateral striatum disrupt stimulus-response learning. Neuroscience 415:161-172. doi: 10.1016/j.neuroscience.2019.07.033
Objective: To investigate whether enhanced activation of the patch compartment contributes to habitual behavior.
Summary: The dorsolateral patch compartment may mediate habit formation by altering information flow through basal ganglia circuits.
Usage: A volume of 2 ul of Dermorphin-SAP (17 ng/ul or an equivalent amount of unconjugated SAP (as a control) was infused bilaterally, at a rate of 0.5 ul/min.
