1. The effects of electroconvulsive treatment (ECT) and indomethacin on brain regional and right-left hemispheric distribution of tachykinins (TK), neuropeptide Y (NPY), neurotensin (NT) and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) were studied in the rat. 2. Differences in peptide concentration between brain regions (frontal cortex, striatum, occipital cortex, hippocampus and hypothalamus) were found for all five peptides measured (all P values less than 0.001). 3. Furthermore, concentration… CONTINUE READING
