A self-stimulation and E-controlled stimulation study was completed in one rat. The study supports the two-factor model of the self-stimulation mechanism which predicts 1 the shape of self-stimulation curves and changes in stimulation rate as a function of stimulation parameters, 2 dual autonomic effects of self-stimulation, 3 stimulus-bound feeding and self-stimulation at the same electrode site, 4 on-off behavior, and 5 changes in the above with changes in anatomical locus.
