Neural mechanisms of executive function : the role of the pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus and medial prefrontal cortex in delayed spatial win-shift behaviour in the rat
(University of St Andrews, 2002) - Thesis
The pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus (PPTg) has been argued to be involved in mediating neural processing relating to executive functions (Winn, 1998). Since it shares connections with fronto-striatal circuitry this ...
Behavioural investigation of the role of caudal thalamic reticular nucleus in attention
(University of St Andrews, 2007-11) - Thesis
The thalamic reticular nucleus (TRN), and especially its caudal, sensory-related, half (cTRN), has been hypothesised for years to be at the very heart of thalamic sensory processing modulation, and attentional processes ...
