The effects of glutamate receptor agonists on neurotensin release using in vivo microdialysis.

In the present study, extracellular concentrations of neurotensin were measured from the striatum, nucleus accumbens and the medial prefrontal cortex in the awake, freely moving rat. Using a highly sensitive solid phase radioimmunoassay, basal concentrations of neurotensin were 2-5 pg/sample. In each region, glutamate receptor agonists, N-methyl-D-aspartate… CONTINUE READING
