Prolactin increases the activity of tuberoinfundibular and nigroneostriatal dopamine neurons: Prolactin antiserum inhibits the haloperidol-induced increases in dopamine synthesis rates in median
The role of PRL in mediating the haloperidol-induced increase in tuberoinfundibular dopamine synthesis rate was assessed by studying the effects of administration of PRL antiserum. Antiserum to PRLExpand
