Description

In the present report we examined the differences in in vitro dopamine (DA) and dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) efflux from the corpus striatum (CS) of intact versus 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) lesioned (in substantia nigra) male rats in response to different doses of two pulse infusions of L-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA). In the first experiment, we tested the effects of two 20-min infusions of 5 uM L-DOPA. In the second experiment we repeated this protocol using 50 uM
