Regulation of dopamine synthesis in the medial prefrontal cortex is mediated by release modulating autoreceptors: studies in vivo.


Previous studies have suggested that rat mesoprefrontal dopamine (DA) neurons are devoid of synthesis and impulse-modulating autoreceptors. We have examined further the presynaptic regulatory parameters of these neurons in vivo and have developed a model based on the following observations. Prefrontal DA turnover, measured as the rate of DA disappearance… (More)
