It is thus possible to use the procedure to test for differences in single neuron activity across relatively small subregions of a given structure (Uzwiak et al. 1997; Hollander and Carelli 2005; Peoples et al. 2007b). 5 Example of a raster and histogram display for a single neuron. Top: A raster display marks the occurrence of each discharge of a particular neuron for 15 cocaine­reinforced lever presses. Each tick corresponds to a single discharge. Each row shows all the discharges during the 10 sec before and after each of the 15 lever presses.

These include but are not limited to the state of depolarization, the firing rate of a neuron, and the identity of afferent input to a neuron at the time of drug exposure (O’Donnell et al. 1999; Floresco et al. 2003; O’Donnell 2003; West et al. 2003). There is a potential for marked differences in the state of these variables between behaving animals and either the slice or the anesthetized animal preparations. In both the slice and anesthetized animal preparations, individual neurons can be cut off from normal afferent input.
