Figure 6: Local dopamine release from the globus pallidus was monitored by microdialysis. Dialysis probes were implanted in the globus pallidus of EGF-treated, vehicle-treated, and EGF-treated plus risperidone-medicated rats. Dopamine release of EGF-treated rats was elevated in both basal and high potassium (K) evoked conditions. These increases were normalized by subchronic treatment with the antipsychotic risperidone (1 mg/kg/day, 14 days total). and .
