However, a perhaps more parsimonious explanation, suggested by the greatly increased latency to feed, is the possibility that the feeding may be the consequence of a type of cellular rebound effect resulting from transmitter depletion or neuronal fatigue that leaves AcbSh projection cells essentially in a suppressed state of activity. Regardless of the underlying cause, such results underscore the complexity of studying behaviors elicited by the disruption of local transmitter systems. To date, no significant differences have been noted between the behavioral effects of inhibiting the AcbSh with DNQX or GABA agonists.
