Comparison of the effect of prolactin on dopamine release from the rat dorsal and ventral striatum and from the mediobasal hypothalamus superfused in vitro.

In this paper, by means of a superfusion technique, we have examined the effect of ovine prolactin on dopaminergic neurons innervating the dorsal striatum, ventral striatum and the mediobasal hypothalamus of male rats. Fragments from dorsal striatum were superfused with ovine prolactin dissolved in normal medium (Krebs-Ringer phosphate) or medium containing… CONTINUE READING
