You could also check out Jeffrey M. Liebman & Steven J. Cooper, 'The
Neuropharmacological Basis of Reward' (1989); Oxford University Press
It has plenty on pathways and chemicals, transmitters, and a good bibliography.
Articles by J.R. Stellar & M.B. Rice on "Neuroanatomical bases of intracranial self-stimulation",
"Neuronal basis of intracranial self-stimulation", etc.. Perhaps time will have made some
of this obsolescent, but it's a good starting point.
