The acute effect of ammonium acetate on levels of amino acids in the intact and decorticated rat neostriatum.


Unilateral frontal cortex ablations were performed in rats so that the glutamate terminals in the ipsilateral rostral neostriatum were removed. At 1 or 7 days later, intraperitoneal injections of ammonium acetate induced different changes in amino acid concentrations in the intact and deafferentated neostriatum. After 1 day, the level of glutamate decreased… (More)
