A direct comparison of amphetamine-induced behaviours and regional brain dopamine release in the rat using intracerebral dialysis
An intracerebral microdialysis method was used in awake rats to directly compare the effect of amphetamine on dopamine (DA) release in the striatum and nucleus (n.) accumbens with alterations inExpand

Bi-phasic change in BDNF gene expression following antidepressant drug treatment
The gene for brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) has recently received attention in relation to the therapeutic action of antidepressant treatment. This study aimed to clarify the influence ofExpand

Purine levels in the intact rat brain. Studies with an implanted perfused hollow fibre
A thin dialysis tube was implanted stereotaxically under halothane anesthesia in the caudate nucleus of Sprague-Dawley rats and perfused with Ringer solution at a rate of 2 microliters/min. InitiallyExpand

In vivo measurement of extracellular dopamine and DOPAC in rat striatum after various dopamine-releasing drugs; implications for the origin of extracellular DOPAC.
In order to further examine the likely origin of the dopamine (DA) metabolite, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), certain drugs known to release DA from different intraneuronal pools were testedExpand

Fluoxetine-induced change in rat brain expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor varies depending on length of treatment
Recent studies indicate that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) may be implicated in the clinical action of antidepressant drugs. Repeated (2-3 weeks) administration of antidepressant drugsExpand

In Vivo Measurement of Dopamine and Its Metabolites by Intracerebral Dialysis: Changes After d‐Amphetamine
Abstract: By using a new technique, intracerebral dialysis, in combination with high performance liquid chromatography and electrochemical detection, it was possible to recover and measure endogenousExpand

Manipulations of brain 5-HT levels affect gene expression for BDNF in rat brain
The aim of the present study was to investigate whether changes in brain 5-HT concentrations affect the expression of BDNF mRNA in rat brain. Brain 5-HT concentration in the rat was elevated byExpand

5-HT3 receptor antagonists inhibit morphine-induced stimulation of mesolimbic dopamine release and function in the rat.
The effects of three different 5HT3 receptor antagonists, granisetron, ICS 205-930 and ondansetron (0.01, 0.1 and 1 mg/kg, s.c.) were tested on changes in mesolimbic dopamine function produced by 1Expand

An In Vivo Study of Dopamine Release and Metabolism in Rat Brain Regions Using Intracerebral Dialysis
Intracerebral dialysis was used with a specifically designed HPLC with electrochemical detection assay to monitor extracellular levels of endogenous 3,4‐dihydroxyphenylethylamine (dopamine, DA) andExpand

Effect of neuroleptic drugs on striatal dopamine release and metabolism in the awake rat studied by intracerebral dialysis.
This study investigated the effect of three neuroleptic drugs, (+/-)-sulpiride, haloperidol and cis-flupenthixol, on dopamine release and metabolism in the striatum of the awake rat. EndogenousExpand
