Effects of buspirone on dopamine dependent behaviours in rats.
TLDR
Results indicate that buspirone by selectively blocking presynaptic nigrostriatal D2 DA autoreceptors, increases synthesis of DA and makes more DA available for release by dexamphetamine and during haloperidol-induced compensatory 'feedback' increase of nigrostRIatal DAergic neuronal activity and thus potentiates dexamphetamine stereotypy and antagonizes haloperIDol catalepsy.
Effects of the antidepressant trazodone, a 5-HT2A/2C receptor antagonist, on dopamine-dependent behaviors in rats
TLDR
It is suggested that trazodone (5, 10 and 20 mg/kg), by blocking the 5-HT2C receptors, releases the nigrostriatal DAergic neurons from tonic inhibition caused by 5- HT, and thereby potentiates dexamphetamine stereotypy and antagonizes haloperidol catalepsy.
3-Methoxytyramine accumulation: Effects of typical neuroleptics and various atypical compounds
TLDR
The observation that SCH 23390, a D- 1 DA receptor antagonist, had negligible effects on 3-MT accumulation suggests that D-1 receptor blockade, unlike D-2 blockade, may have minimal effects on DA release.

Antiamphetamine effects following inhibition of tyrosine hydroxylase.
TLDR
The antiamphetamine effects of α-MT and other tyrosine hydroxylase inhibitors suggest that a critical level of norepinephrine at the receptor is required for amphetamine to exert its customary effects.
EFFECT OF DRUGS ON THE UPTAKE, RELEASE, AND METABOLISM OF H3-NOREPINEPHRINE IN THE RAT BRAIN.
TLDR
The different actions of amphetamine and reserpine on the metabolism of H3-norepinephrine indicate the presence of more than one storage form of the brain catecholamine.
Amphetamine-induced dopaminergic hypersensitivity in guinea pigs. Implications in psychosis and human movement disorders.
Following chronic amphetamine pretreatment, guinea pigs demonstrate an increased sensitivity to both d-amphetamine sulfate- and apomorphine hydrochloride-induced stereotyped behavior. This

TLDR
Amphetamine induced vigorous rotational behaviour in rats where the nigrostriatal dopamine system was unilaterally degenerated by an intracerebral injection of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OH-DA) and evidence was obtained that the amphetamine induced release of DA was dependent upon nerve impulses.

TLDR
Findings provoke the speculation that specific and distinct effects of amphetamines on dopamine and norepinephrine neurons may combine to account for major symptoms of amphetamine psychosis.
Role of Catecholamines in the Amphetamine Excitatory Response
TLDR
The advent of α-methyl para-tyrosine3 (α-MPT), which inhibits the in vivo synthesis of 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA)—the physiological precursor of the catecholamines—offers a new way of investigating this problem.
