Figure 23: Repeated haloperidol treatment caused a reduction in the number of spontaneously active dopamine neurons in both SAL and MAM rats microinfused with vehicle in the ventral HPC compared to untreated control animals. Infusion of TTX in the ventral HPC reversed the haloperidol-induced reduction in cells/track in SAL, but not MAM, rats (a). Repeated haloperidol treatment had no effect on the firing rate of dopamine neurons recorded in SAL or MAM rats infused with vehicle or TTX in the ventral HPC (b). Repeated haloperidol treatment had no effect on the percentage of spikes occurring in bursts for dopamine neurons recorded in SAL or MAM rats infused with vehicle or TTX in the ventral HPC (c) [36, 38, 4761]. .
