Effects of d- and l-amphetamine on Local Cerebral Glucose Utilization in the Conscious Rat
This paper was the first report of the use of a neurotransmitter agonist to localize and to quantify the magnitude of the
effects of the neurotransmitter on local cerebral glucose utilization. It was also the first to provide evidence that the
subthalamic nucleus was part of a dopaminergic pathway.
