Attenuation of delay-period activity of monkey prefrontal neurons by an alpha2-adrenergic antagonist during an oculomotor delayed-response task.

Abstract

To examine the role of norepinephrine receptors in spatial working memory processes mediated by the prefrontal cortex (PFC), noradrenergic antagonists (yohimbine for alpha2, prazosin for alpha1, and propranolol for beta receptors) were applied iontophoretically to neurons of the dorsolateral PFC in rhesus monkeys that performed an oculomotor delayed… (More)
