Disappearance of hoarding and disorganization of eating behavior after ventral mesencephalic tegmentum lesions in rats



Disappearance of hoarding and disorganization of eating behavior after ventral mesencephalic tegmentum lesions in rats



Journal of Comparative and Physiological Psychology 92(2): 289-296



The effects of ventral mesencephalic tegmentum (VMT) radio-frequency lesions on spontaneous and complex behaviours, such as food hoarding and alimentary patterns, were studied. Activity measures indicated that VMT lesions increased horizontal activity in a circular corridor as well as in an open field whereas vertical activity (rearing) was decreased.
