medium spiny neuron intracellularly recorded/filled with Lucifer
yellow in the n. accumbens of an anesthetized rat (In Vivo),
illustrating the somatodendritic morphology. Note the axon arising
from the soma (at 7 o’clock angle) and extensive axon
collaterals within the somatodendritic field. Correlated
intracellular recordings from this neuron have revealed
cortical-evoked excitatory synaptic potentials.
