Injections of D,L-5-hydroxytryptophan (D,L-5-HTP) into pigeons and rats working on approach schedules produce a period of behavioral depression that is temporally correlated to increased levels of total serotonin (5-?HT) in the telencephalon and diencephalon. Administration of alpha-methyl-meta-tyrosine (alpha-MMT) also results in depressed responding;(More)
Parameters affecting the binding of [3H]glycine to membrane fractions isolated from the cerebral cortex, midbrain, cerebellum, medulla oblongata, and spinal cord of the rat were investigated in a Na+-free medium. A [3H]glycine binding assay was established in which the binding was specific, saturable, pH-sensitive, and reversible. Conditions were chosen in(More)
