Postsynaptic modulation of AMPA- and NMDA-receptor currents by Group III metabotropic glutamate receptors in rat nucleus accumbens.

Abstract

Whole cell patch clamp recordings from rat nucleus accumbens neurons were made in order to study the effect of metabotropic glutamate receptors and dopamine on postsynaptic glutamate receptor mediated currents. AMPA- and NMDA-R currents were evoked by flash photolysis of caged glutamate, while spike-dependent release of neurotransmitters was prevented by… (More)
