  • Abstract: The modification of dopamine release and accumulation induced by γ‐hydroxybutyrate (GHB) was studied using both striatal slices and in vivo microdialysis of caudate‐putamen. GHB inhibited dopamine release for ∼5–10 min in vitro, and this was associated with an accumulation of dopamine in the tissue. Subsequently, there was an increase in dopamine release. In the microdialysis experiments, low doses of GHB inhibited dopamine release, whereas higher doses strongly increased release; the… CONTINUE READING
