Extracellular levels of dopamine (DA), serotonin (5-HT), and norepinephrine (NE) were measured by microdialysis in conscious rats equipped with dual probes, one in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) and another one in the contralateral nucleus accumbens (NACC). Dialysate content of all amines in both regions was essentially abolished by local infusion of tetrodotoxin (1 μM) or Ca2+-free buffer. Injection of the selective DA uptake blocker GBR 12935 (15 mg/kg IP) increased DA, as well as NE and… CONTINUE READING
