Somatodendritic release of endogenous dopamine: in vivo dialysis in the A10 dopamine region Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Using in vivo dialysis in the A10 region of the anesthetized rat, somatodendritic release of endogenous dopamine was demonstrated. Although endogenous dopamine release from the A10 region was enhanced by amphetamine pretreatment in a dose-related manner, the amount of dopamine released was markedly less than the axonal release of dopamine measured simultaneously in the nucleus accumbens.
