Lesioning of serotoninergic and noradrenergic nerve fibres of the rat brain does not decrease binding of 3H-clonidine and 3H-rauwolscine to cortical membranes


α2-adrenoceptors located presynaptically on nerve terminals are known to modulate the release of neurotransmitters from noradrenergic and serotoninergic neurons. The pre- and/or postsynaptic localization of binding sites for α2-adrenergic radioligands, the agonist 3H-clonidine and the antagonist 3H-rauwolscine, was investigated in the rat cerebral cortex by… (More)
