Title: 'Shifting roles of the dorsal striatum in action sequence learning'
Abstract: A shift in control from medial to lateral regions of the dorsal striatum occur as behaviours become more habitual or skilled, however this is often examined using a single repeated action or rotarod performance. Using a sequential nose poke task in rats, I examined the role of the dorsal striatum in learning action sequences and the role of dopamine D1 and D2 receptors during expression of skilled sequences. These results suggest that control does not move serially from medial to lateral sub-regions, but rather the regions act in parallel with the dorsomedial striatum delaying the formation of skills and habits.
