Interaction of EAA- and GABA-Neurotransmission in the SNR of Cats: Open Field Behaviour
Part of the Advances in Behavioral Biology book series (ABBI, volume 39)
The pars reticulata of the substantia nigra (SNR) is considered to be an intercalated station between striatal GABAergic and subthalamic glutamatergic fibres (Dray, 1979; Kitai and Kita, 1987).
