In vivo evidence for an inhibitory glutamatergic control of serotonin release in the cat caudate nucleus: involvement of GABA neurons.

The local effect of L-glutamic acid (5 x 10(-5) M) on the release of [3H]serotonin continuously synthesized from [3H]tryptophan was examined in the caudate nucleus of 'encéphale isolé' unanaesthetized cats implanted with push-pull cannula. L-Glutamic acid (5 x 10(-5) M) decreased [3H]serotonin release from nerve terminals of the dorsalis raphe-striatal… CONTINUE READING
