The excitatory amino acid antagonists 2-amino-5-phosphonovalerate and γ-D-glutamylglycine have been applied focally to the ventral tegmental area and both the pars compacta and pars reticulata of the substantia nigra of the rat. The injections were performed under halothane anaesthesia so that behavioural effects could be observed 5 min afterwards… CONTINUE READING
