The effect of a pro-erectile dose of apomorphine, a mixed dopamine receptor agonist, and of PD-168077 (N-[4-(2-cyanophenyl)piperazin-1-ylmethyl]-3-methylbenzamide maleate), a selective dopamine D4 receptor agonist, injected into the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus on the concentration of extra-cellular dopamine and its main metabolite 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) in the dialysate from the nucleus accumbens was studied in male rats. As expected, apomorphine (0.1microg) and… CONTINUE READING
