The mechanism of ethanol, morphine, methamphetamine (MAP), and nicotine-induced ascorbic acid (AA) release in striatum, and nucleus accumbens (NAc) is not well understood. Our previous study showed that the glutamatergic system was involved in the addictive drug-induced AA release in NAc and striatum. Furthermore, frontal decortication eliminates(More)
Previous studies have shown that acute systemic administration of ethanol induced ascorbic acid (AA) release in mouse striatum and prefrontal cortex. Clozapine and olanzapine showed similar effects on ethanol-induced AA release in mouse striatum. However, their effects on ethanol-induced AA release in mouse prefrontal cortex have not been reported. Thus,(More)
Previous studies have shown that striatum and nucleus accumbens (NAc) are two different structures in mediating addictive drug-induced ascorbic acid (AA) release. In order to further characterize the different effects of drugs-induced AA release in the striatum and NAc, in the present study, we investigated the effect of ethanol, morphine, methamphetamine,(More)
The mechanism of morphine-, methamphetamine-, and nicotine-induced ascorbic acid (AA) release in the striatum and nucleus accumbens (NAc) is not well understood. In the present study, the roles of the corticostriatal and corticoaccumbens pathways in drug-induced AA release were studied by using microdialysis coupled to high performance liquid chromatography(More)
Previous studies have shown that acute systemic administration of ethanol-induced striatal ascorbic acid (AA) release in mice and rats. In the present study, in vivo brain microdialysis coupled with high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with electrochemical detection (ECD) was used to comparatively evaluate the effects of clozapine on(More)
