2-Phenylethylamine (PE) is an endogenous brain amine which produces sympathomimetic responses and potentiates cortical neuron responses to noradrenaline (NA). In order to examine further the mechanism of action of PE, extracellular recordings were made of the activity of single neurones in the cerebral cortex in urethane-anesthetized rats. Sympathomimetic… CONTINUE READING
