The response of the noNEpinephrine (NE) sensitive cyclic AMP generating system in slices of the rat limbic forebrain after both the acute and chronic administration of the tricyclic antidepressants desipramine (DMI) and iprindole as well as electro-convulsive treatment (ECT) was investigated. Neither the basal level of cyclic AMP nor the hormonal response(More)
The present results show that clonidine does not mimic the agonist action of norepinephrine (NE) on the noradrenergic cyclic AMP generating system of the limbic forebrain, but antagonizes the stimulatory effect of NE while not influencing the action of isoprenaline. In self-stimulation behavior, clonidine decreases responding and blocks the facilitation(More)
The effect of various antipsychotic drugs on the blockade of dopaminergic receptors in striatum and limbic forebrain was examined by establishing dose-response curves for the increase in HVA and for the antagonism of d-amphetamine-induced rotation in rats with unilateral lesions of the substantia nigra. A good quantitative correlation was found between(More)
The cyclic AMP generating system in slices of the rat limbic forebrain was investigated. In consists of: (u) A noradrenergic system which responds to norepinephrine (NE) and isoproterenol. Though the rise of the nucleotide elicited by isoproterenol is more rapid than that caused by NE, the maximal effect is less than half of that induced by NE; (2) an(More)
