Stimulation by neurotensin of dopamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) release from rat prefrontal cortex: possible role of NTR1 receptors in neuropsychiatric disorders.

The modulation of cortical dopaminergic and serotonergic neurotransmissions by neurotensin (NT) was studied by measuring the release of dopamine (DA) and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) from the prefrontal cortex (PFC) of freely moving rats. The samples were collected via transversal microdialysis. Dopamine and 5-HT levels in the dialysate were measured using… CONTINUE READING
