The electrically induced release of labelled alpha-aminoisobutyrate, L-alpha-alanine, beta-alanine, glycine, histidine, serine, glutamate, aspartate and taurine, from superfused thin slices of the rat neocortex, held on quick-transfer electrodes was studied. In no instance did the release of these substances resemble that of (3H)-labelled noradrenaline, acetylcholine or 5-hydroxytryptamine, which can be released by 0.5-3 V stimuli and whose release shows an absolute dependency on calcium ions… CONTINUE READING
