    Eur J Neurosci 26:1479-88. 2007
    ..With increased activity, the release probability decreased and a burst of activity caused a relative facilitation of dopamine release. This form of regulation would be expected to limit activity within the cell body region...

    Michael J Beckstead
    Department of Behavioral Neuroscience, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR 97239, USA
    Neuropsychopharmacology 34:1926-35. 2009
    ..The results indicate that CRF influences dopamine- and GABA-mediated inhibition in the midbrain, suggesting implications for the chronic actions of psychostimulants and stress on dopamine-mediated behaviors...

    ..Reduced inhibition could increase burst firing and action potential-dependent release of dopamine in terminal regions in vivo...

    J Neurophysiol 97:883-91. 2007
    ..The results thus demonstrate both pre- and postsynaptic actions of kappa receptor agonists. The actions of dynorphin indicate that VTA dopamine cells are selectively regulated by kappa receptors...
