Dynamic dopamine receptor interactions in the core and shell of nucleus accumbens differentially coordinate the expression of unconditioned motor behaviors.

Abstract:

Many neurochemical and behavioral functions mediated by dopamine require the dynamic interaction between dopamine receptors. We examined the behavioral effects evoked by microinjections of drugs with relative selectivity for specific dopamine receptors into the nucleus accumbens (Acb). The results showed that, at behaviorally inactive doses, the dopamine D1-class receptor agonist SKF 38393 switched the behavioral profile induced by injections of the dopamine D2-class receptor agonist quinpiro...
