Related ArticlesCholinergic Interneurons Underlie Spontaneous Dopamine Release in Nucleus Accumbens. J Neurosci. 2017 Feb 22;37(8):2086-2096 Authors: Yorgason JT, Zeppenfeld DM, Williams JT Abstract The release of dopamine from terminals in the NAc is regulated by a number of factors, including voltage-gated ion channels, D2-autoreceptors, and nAChRs. Cholinergic interneurons (CINs) drive dopamine release through activation of nAChRs on dopamine terminals. Using cyclic [...]
