Modulation of odor-entrained ensembles by phasic dopamine in the olfactory striatum
To obtain a better understanding of the mechanisms of stimulus selection, we propose here to examine the cellular processes by which phasic dopamine modulates ventral striatal odour-activated cellular ensembles with slice and in vivo tetrode recordings.
