Sensitivity of the nigral dopamine neurons to intravenous apomorphine was examined in rats pretreated with continuous cocaine or saline for two weeks. One day after withdrawal from pretreatment, a subsensitivity was observed while a supersensitivity was found on day 7, along with a significant increase in the baseline firing rates. In humans, an increased(More)
BACKGROUND Background K+ channels are the principal determinants of the resting membrane potential (RMP) in cardiac myocytes and thus, influence the magnitude and time course of the action potential (AP). METHODS RT-PCR and in situ hybridization are used to study the distribution of TASK-1 and whole-cell patch clamp technique is employed to determine the(More)

Single nigral dopamine neurons were extracellularly recorded in vitro after withdrawal from continuous d-amphetamine sulfate infusion (5.0 mg/kg per day for 7 days via subcutaneous osmotic minipumps). Seven days after withdrawal, the dopamine neurons were supersensitive to impulse-inhibition by dopamine. This increased sensitivity suggests a(More)
