The toxic effect of kainic acid on neurotransmitters in nucleus accumbens.

Abstract

Neurotransmitter parameters (GAD, ChAT, high affinity glutamate uptake and QNB binding) in nucleus accumbens showed a dose-dependent sensitivity towards in situ injections of the toxic agent kainic acid. We found that the effect of kainic acid was only to a small part dependent on the main glutamergic input from the subiculum. The study shows that muscarinic receptors in the nucleus accumbens are mostly located on intrinsic neurons.
