An alternative, analogous to the convergence model of intracranial MFB self-stimulation, would include multiple, convergent pathways. Rompré and Miliaressis (1985, 1987) have described an array of electrical self-stimulation sites that runs longitudinally along the core of the mesencephalon, well caudal to the dopamine cells bodies clustered in the ventral tegmental area (VTA).

Refinement of behavioral methods for drawing neurochemical inferences about the reward substrate and development of increasingly specific pharmacological agents helped build a consensus that dopamine neurons play a crucial role in the phenomenon ( Franklin, 1978; Wise, 1978, 1980).Alas, that hopeful formulation is not well supported by evidence: adding weight to the lever produces both vertical rescaling and lateral shifts ( Frank and Williams, 1985; Fouriezos et al.

However, as in studies focusing on other deep brain stimulation brain targets for relief of depression, prolonged randomized controlled trials on MFB deep brain stimulation have not yet shown clear differences between sham stimulation and deep brain stimulation ( Dougherty et al. In our view, animals working relentlessly for rewarding stimulation of the MFB and choosing to pursue such stimulation in lieu of competing natural rewards manifest the antithesis of the blunted motivation characterizing depression.The experimental paradigms in question should be amenable to assessing the effect of MFB stimulation on reward expectations. In the following subsections we summarize evidence that gave rise to the series-circuit hypothesis as well as evidence that challenges this longstanding account of brain-reward circuitry. Although animal models of depression are widely used, the external and construct validity of such modeling of psychopathology in laboratory animals has been questioned ( Molendijk and de Kloet, 2015; Pound and Ritskes-Hoitinga, 2018).

Case reports document a swift relapse of depressive symptoms following discontinuation of MFB stimulation and swift remission once stimulation was reinstated ( Kilian et al. The reason for this is intuitive: the vigor of performance depends both on the cost of the reward as well as on its strength. By using our service we can offer you peace of mind that the devices are functionally correct and offer an insight into the history of the device.Importantly, the suicide attempt rate for treatment-resistant depression is at least double the lifetime rate in non-resistant depression and 15 times the rate in the normal population ( Bernal et al. Please note that most chip waffle trays are Jedec standard waffle trays, however some are EIAJ or manufacturer specific. Extension of the quantitative approach to rewarding effects produced by specific optogenetic activation of midbrain dopamine neurons has led to a new view of the circuitry underlying intracranial self-stimulation ( Trujillo-Pisanty et al.
