INHIBITION OF DOPAMINE-β-HYDROXYLASE BY DISULFIRAM IN VIVO
Disulfiram is a potent inhibitor of dopamine-β-oxidase which lowers norepinephrine content of the tissues. It prevents conversion of dopamine-H3, tyramine-H3 and other phenylethylamines to theirExpand

Tremor and Involuntary Movements in Monkeys: Effect of L-Dopa and of a Dopamine Receptor Stimulating Agent
Either L-dopa, in combination with 1-α-methyldopa hydrazine (MK-486), or 1-(2''-pyrimidyl)-4-piperonylpiperazine, an agent that stimulates dopamine receptors, relieves surgically induced tremor inExpand

STUDIES OF AMINES IN THE STRIATUM IN MONKEYS WITH NIGRAL LESIONS
The effects of ventromedial tegmental lesions on the biosynthesis and disposition of biogenic amines in the striatum of monkeys were investigated. The concentrations of endogenous dopamine and of theExpand

Norepinephrine Biosynthesis Inhibition: Effects on Memory in Mice
Diethyldithiocarbamate, a dopamine beta hydroxylase inhibitor, decreases biosynthesis of norepinephrine in the brain. The effects of this inhibitor coincide with alterations in memory as demonstratedExpand

The effects of ventromedial tegmental lesions on the biosynthesis of catecholamines in the striatum
Abstract Following ventromedial tegmental lesions in the brain stem of monkeys, tyrosine hydroxylase activity is significantly lower on the lesion side of the caudate nucleus and putamen. The in vivoExpand

Drug-induced Relief of the Tremor in Monkeys with Mesencephalic Lesions
MODEL syndromes of extrapyramidal dysfunction have been induced in monkeys by introduction of unilateral lesions into the ventromedial area of the brain stem1. In such cases the destruction of theExpand
