In this study, we compare the electrically evoked, somatodendritic release of dopamine (DA) with axonal release of serotonin (5-HT) in the substantia nigra (SN) and ventral tegmental area (VTA) in vitro by using fast-scan cyclic voltammetry with carbon-fibre microelectrodes. Furthermore, we have examined transmitter release in these regions in guinea-pig compared with rat. Somatodendritic DA was released, as shown previously, in guinea-pig VTA, SN pars compacta (SNc), and occasionally in SN p...Expand abstract
