It has been reported that in the medial nucleus accumbens (NAc) there are nerve terminals which contain either the neuropeptide cholecystokinin (CCK) or the catecholamine dopamine (DA), as well as terminals which contain both. In this study, we have examined the action of CCK-peptides on the basal and potassium-evoked release of [3H]DA within this structure. The in vivo release of [3H]DA, newly synthesized from [3H]tyrosine, was measured by using the push-pull cannula perfusion technique. It… CONTINUE READING
