Effects of locally applied cocaine, lidocaine, and various uptake blockers on monoamine transmission in the ventral tegmental area of freely moving rats: a microdialysis study on monoamine interrelationships.

Abstract

Microdialysis was used to compare the effect of local perfusion of cocaine with that of functionally similar compounds on extracellular norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin (measured simultaneously) in the ventral tegmental area of freely moving rats. Tetrodotoxin (1 microM) potently inhibited both basal and cocaine-induced dialysate monoamine outputs… (More)
