Nicotinic receptor-mediated regulation of dopamine transporter activity in rat prefrontal cortex.

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine whether nicotine could selectively influence dopamine levels in the prefrontal cortex as compared with other dopaminergic areas of brain. Using a superfusion system, we found that nicotine and other agonists at nicotinic acetylcholine receptors enhanced the release of radiolabeled dopamine that was stimulated by… (More)
