The modulatory actions of dopamine on the flow of cortical information through the basal ganglia are mediated mainly through two subtypes of receptors, the D1 and D2 receptors. In order to examine the precise cellular and subcellular location of these receptors, immunocytochemistry using subtype specific antibodies was performed on sections of rat basal… CONTINUE READING
