Modifications of precentral cortex discharge and EMG activity in monkeys with MPTP-induced lesions of DA nigral neurons
Summary1. Individual neurons were recorded extracellularly in the precentral forelimb area of two monkeys trained to perform rapid, large amplitude flexion and extension movements of theExpand

Increase in Dopamine Turnover Occurs Early in Parkinson's Disease: Evidence from a New Modeling Approach to PET 18F-Fluorodopa Data
An increase in dopamine turnover has been hypothesized to occur early in Parkinson's disease (PD) as a compensatory mechanism for dopaminergic neuronal loss. A new approach to the determination ofExpand

Presynaptic dopaminergic deficits in Lesch-Nyhan disease.
BACKGROUND Lesch-Nyhan disease is a rare, devastating, X-linked recessive disorder of purine synthesis. Patients present with hyperuricemia, choreoathetosis, dystonia, and aggressive andExpand

Dopamine release in ventral striatum during Iowa Gambling Task performance is associated with increased excitement levels in pathological gambling.
AIMS Gambling excitement is believed to be associated with biological measures of pathological gambling. Here, we tested the hypothesis that dopamine release would be associated with increasedExpand

MRI and PET studies of manganese‐intoxicated monkeys
Article abstract—Using MRI and PET, we investigated the consequences of manganese intoxication in a primate model of parkinsonism and dystonia. Three rhesus monkeys were injected intravenously withExpand

6-18F-DOPA PET study in patients with schizophrenia
Presynaptic dopamine metabolism was studied in a group of patients with schizophrenia and in an age- and gender-matched normal control group using 6-[(18)F]fluoro-L-DOPA ((18)F-DOPA) and positronExpand

A Reversible Tracer Analysis Approach to the Study of Effective Dopamine Turnover
Changes in dopamine turnover resulting from disease states such as Parkinson's disease may be reflected in corresponding changes in the kinetics of the positron emission tomographic tracerExpand

Evaluation of Dopaminergic Presynaptic Integrity: 6-[18F]Fluoro-L-Dopa Versus 6-[18F]Fluoro-L-m-Tyrosine
The effectiveness of 6-[18F]fluoro-L-m-tyrosine (6FMT) to evaluate dopamine presynaptic integrity was compared to that of 6-[18F]fluoro-L-dopa (6FDOPA) in vivo by positron emission tomography (PET).Expand
