Endogenous glutamate-taurine interaction in striatum and nucleus accumbens of the freely moving rat: studies during the normal process of aging.

Abstract

Using microdialysis, the effects of endogenous glutamate on extracellular concentrations of taurine, in striatum and nucleus accumbens of the awake rat during the normal process of aging were investigated. The glutamate uptake inhibitor L-trans-pyrrolidine-2,4-dicarboxylic acid (PDC) was perfused through the microdialysis probe to increase the endogenous… (More)
