Abstract: In order to investigate the role of the dorsomedial and dorsolateral caudate-putamen (CPu) in movement initiation of rats, we examined the effects of quinolinic acid lesions (30 nmol in 1 μl) in these striatal subregions in a simple reaction time task. Results show that lesions of the dorsomedial, but not of the dorsolateral CPu increased reaction times. These findings provide further evidence for a functional heterogenity of the CPu and demonstrate an involvement of the dorsomedial CPu in processes related to rapid initiation of responses
