Fast-scan cyclic voltammetry (FCV) data recorded in the nucleus accumbens core (NAcc) of rats carrying out a Go-NoGo task.
Channels recorded are either chan 0 - recorded in the right hemisphere or chan 1 - recorded in the left hemisphere. For study 1 (7 animals) there is only one channel recorded per animal in NAcc. For study 2 (6 animals) there is either one or two channels recorded in each animal. If there were two channels recorded these were recorded on separate dates.
Each FCV data file is named 'Stacked_Qcutoff'. Data provided here has undergone chemometric analysis and values are the recorded current (nA) corresponding to dopamine oxidation. At each timepoint when the chemometric analysis failed to resolve dopamine from the recorded signal, the value is given as 'NaN'.
The data is a tab separated file, with continuous recordings organised in columns. The first column holds timestamps (resolution is 10 Hz) and all subsequent columns represent one trial.
Behavioural Data was recorded with MED-PC and is saved in text files found in the folder corresponding to the animal.
For study 1 these will be named 'gonogo_rat(RatNumber)_(DateOfRecording)'. There is one behavioural file per animal.
For study 2 these will be named '009_(RatNumber)_step6v_(DateOfRecording). There are two behavioural files per animal.
