The effect of nicotine on evoked glutamate release from isolated nerve terminals (synaptosomes) from rat prefrontal cortex was examined. We found that nicotine significantly potentiated 4-aminopyridine (4AP)-evoked glutamate release, and this potentiatory effect was mimicked by the selective alpha7 nicotinic receptor agonist choline and was blocked by the(More)
