The effects of the application of serotonin, histamine, noradrenaline and dopamine to the bath on field potentials in the suprachiasmatic nucleus evoked by stimulation of the optic nerve were studied using a hypothalamic slice. Stimulation of the contralateral optic nerve evoked fast positive and late large negative waves in the suprachiasmatic nucleus. The monoamines produced a dose dependent suppression of the amplitude of the negative wave but did not affect that of the positive waves, and… CONTINUE READING
