Abstract

The effects of intracerebroventricular administration of cholecystokinin-octapeptide-sulfate-ester (CCK-8-SE) on the dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin contents of the hypothalamus, mesencephalon, amygdala, septum and striatum were studied 10, 20 and 60 min following administration of conscious rats. The dopamine content increased in the hypothalamus, mesencephalon, amygdala and septum and decreased in the striatum following CCK-8-SE administration. There was a slight increase in the norepinephrine content of the striatum, but there was no effect on the serotonin contents of any of the brain areas studied.
