Abstract

Flexible goal-directed behavior can depend on the ability to form action-outcome associations and update these associations in dynamic contexts. Corticostriatal circuits regulate some goal-directed behaviors via orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) modulation of striatal neurons. Meanwhile, b1-integrins are cell adhesion receptors necessary for dendrite and dendritic spine structure and stability. This study aims to elucidate whether b1-integrin-expressing neurons in the OFC regulate goal-directed action via projections to CaMKII-expressing neurons in the dorsomedial striatum (DMS).
