We have previously demonstrated alterations in serotonin metabolism within descending pathways following infusion of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) into the midbrain, near the periaqueductal gray and dorsal and median raphe nuclei. The aim of the present study was to extend these studies to include a comprehensive regional examination of monoamine (serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine) and metabolite levels in discrete areas of the intact, adult rat forebrain following direct… CONTINUE READING
