The aim of this study was to demonstrate the potential of a wireless pixelated β+-sensitive intracerebral probe (PIXSIC) for in vivo positron emission tomographic (PET) radiopharmacology in awake and freely moving rodents. The binding of [(11)C]raclopride to D2 dopamine receptors was measured in anesthetized and awake rats following injection of the(More)
The investigation of neurophysiological mechanisms underlying the functional specificity of brain regions requires the development of technologies that are well adjusted to in vivo studies in small animals. An exciting challenge remains the combination of brain imaging and behavioural studies, which associates molecular processes of neuronal communications(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this work was to demonstrate the pharmacokinetic potential of a wireless pixelated β(+)-sensitive probe (PIXSIC). PROCEDURES The binding of 2'-methoxyphenyl-(N-2'-pyridinyl)-p-[(18)F]fluoro-benzamidoethylpiperazine ([(18)F]MPPF), a 5-HT1A serotonin receptor radiopharmaceutical, was measured in anesthetized rats and compared to microPET(More)
