Neurotensin (NT) concentrations in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were measured by a sensitive and specific radioimmunoassay in psychiatric patients and age- and sex-matched normal controls. No increase in CSF NT concentrations was observed after antipsychotic drug treatment. CSF NT concentrations were significantly lower in one group of schizophrenic subjects.(More)
Studies describing the CNS distribution of neuropeptides can provide important new insights concerning their possible physiological functions. The rational for studying human post-mortem tissue, as well as some methodological constraints, are reviewed. The localization of NT in normal human brain is presented. Concentrations of NT, TRH, and SRIF were(More)
