    R E Featherstone
    Department of Psychology, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada
    Neurobiol Learn Mem 84:159-67. 2005
    ..Possible explanations for the differences between the role of the dorsomedial striatum in acquisition and expression of the simple discrimination task are proposed...

    Department of Psychology, University of Toronto, 100 St George Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5S 3G3
    Neuroscience 136:387-95. 2005
    ..Animals with lesions of the dorsolateral striatum showed marked impairments in learning this task, a finding that is in agreement with the notion that the dorsolateral striatum is necessary for stimulus-response learning...

    Robert E Featherstone
    Section of Biopsychology, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto, ON, Canada
    Neuropsychopharmacology 32:483-92. 2007
    ..These results support the notion that MAM treatment may simulate some aspects of schizophrenic cognition...

    R E Featherstone

    Prog Neuropsychopharmacol Biol Psychiatry 31:1556-71. 2007
    ..It is concluded that amphetamine sensitization likely impacts behaviour by altering the functioning of mesolimbic dopamine systems and prefrontal cortical function and can serve as a model of certain domains of schizophrenia...

    Section of Biopsychology, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
    Pharmacol Biochem Behav 93:382-90. 2009
    ..MAM treatment disrupted performance of the win-shift task but did not alter cocaine self-administration or cocaine-induced locomotion. Implications of these results for the MAM model of schizophrenia are discussed...

    Department of Psychology, University of Toronto, 100 St George Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5S 3G3
    Neuroscience 124:23-31. 2004
    ..These results suggest that the dorsolateral striatum is necessary for the successful acquisition of tasks that place a demand upon stimulus-response learning, while the dorsomedial striatum is not involved in this type of learning...
