A study was made of the effects of iontophoretically applied drugs on single neurones in the nucleus accumgens and caudate nucleus of rats anaesthetized with urethane. Neurones in the caudate nucleus were inhibited by dopamine, dibutyryl cyclic AMP, ADTN and ergometrine. Acetylcholine and homocysteic acid caused excitation of striatal neurones. In the nucleus accumbens neurones were inhibited by dopamine, ADTN, ergometrine, dibutyryl cyclic AMP, glycine and gamma-aminobutyric acid. The… CONTINUE READING
