Contingent and non-contingent effects of heroin on mu-opioid receptor-containing ventral tegmental area GABA neurons.


Opiate activation of mu-opioid receptors (muORs) in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) modulates gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) neurotransmission within the mesocorticolimbic dopamine (DA) reward system. We combined in vivo extracellular electrophysiological recordings in anesthetized and freely behaving rats with intracellular Neurobiotin filling and… (More)
