Biphasic effects of carbamazepine on the dopaminergic system in rat striatum and hippocampus.

Abstract

To clarify the effects of carbamazepine (CBZ) on dopamine (DA) release and their metabolism, the extracellular and total levels of DA, its metabolites (DOPAC and HVA) and precursor, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) in the striatum and hippocampus were studied.
