Abstract

Intravenous 17-beta-estradiol (BETA) has a potent, stereospecific, and rapid effect on dopamine (DA) neuron firing rate in the substantia nigra compacta (SNC). Our data demonstrate that immediate intravenous pretreatment with the anti-estrogen clomiphene (CLOM) blocks the action of subsequent intravenous BETA administration. Our results provide further physiologic evidence for membrane-bound estradiol (E2) receptors within the rat brain.
