Recording studies of ventral pallidum during dDNMTP

Ventral pallidum is an output nucleus of the ventral basal ganglia that provides prominent projections to the mediodorsal, midline and intralaminar, and reticular thalamic nuclei. It has been implicated in reward processing and in the motivational control of goal-directed behavior. We are interested in understanding how ventral pallidal neurons encode information about actions and outcomes and how they influence the activity of neurons in thalamus and prefrontal cortex during adaptive goal-directed behavior.
