Characteristics of electrically evoked somatodendritic dopamine release in substantia nigra and ventral tegmental area in vitro.

Abstract:

Somatodendritic dopamine (DA) release from neurons of the midbrain represents a nonclassical form of neuronal signaling. We assessed characteristics of DA release during electrical stimulation of the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc) in guinea pig midbrain slices. With the use of parameters optimized for this region, we compared stimulus-induced increases in extracellular DA concentration ([DA]o) in medial and lateral SNc, ventral tegmental area (VTA), and dorsal striatum in vitro. DA rele...
