Specifically, there were two broad areas dense in neurons that responded, both rich in dopamine (a neurochemical related to addictive behaviors): the anteroventral striatum in the middle of the brain (the so-called "pleasure center"), and the orbitofrontal cortex just above the eyes, related to impulse control and the processing of rewards.
* What is it with the eyes of certain waders (and pigeons) - what is that extra little blob they have anteroventral to the pupil?
Using this panic model, we previously showed that inhibiting the anterior third ventricle region (A3Vr; containing the organum vasculosum lamina terminalis, the median preoptic nucleus, and anteroventral periventricular nucleus) attenuates cardiorespiratory and behavioral responses elicited by i.v. infusions of NaLac.
In the lumbus, anterodorsally inclined spinous processes, non-revolute zygapophyses, and the anteroventral orientation of transverse processes indicate the potential for dorsoventral flexion of the trunk and vertebral column in general.
Bright field photomicrographs in high magnification of SP fibers without citraconic anhydride solution in the anteroventral thalamic nucleus.
We have tested five antibodies commonly used in neurochemical human brain studies, specifically at subcortical levels (anteroventral thalamic nucleus, mediodorsal thalamic nucleus, substantia nigra and caudate nucleus).
