Changes in D1-, D2- and D4-like dopamine receptor binding in rat brain were examined by quantitative autoradiography following: (i) unilateral surgical ablation of frontal cerebral cortex to remove descending projections to corpus striatum and nucleus accumbens, (ii) unilateral injections of kainic acid into corpus striatum or nucleus accumbens to degenerate local intrinsic neurons, (iii) unilateral injections of 6-hydroxydopamine into substantia nigra to degenerate ascending dopamine… CONTINUE READING
