The selective detection of basal extracellular levels of 5-HT with this technique (Peak B) was confirmed with parallel experiments using intracranial microdialysis to measure 5-HT and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) levels in vivo. The DA voltammetric signal (Peak A) was observed in vivo only following pharmacological or electrical stimulation of DA release. Enhanced efflux of cortical DA and 5-HT in response to local application of KCl and that of 5-HT following parentelar fenfluramine were selectively detected by the association: differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) — Nafion coated microbiosensors, supporting the capability of this electrochemical method to selectively monitor release of these amine neurotransmitters in vivo and in situ. The locomotor behaviour data indicated that isolation rearing resulted in augmented locomotor activity in a novel environment. In addition, the in vivo voltammetric results showed that following KC1 or fenfluramine treatment cortical 5-HT release is prolonged while that of DA is increased in rats reared in isolation when compared with socially reared rats. This imbalance between extracellular levels of DA and 5-HT recorded in the frontal cortex of rats exposed to isolated housing conditions may contribute to the behavioural differences reported between isolation and group reared rats. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experimental Brain Research Springer Journals
