Abstract

Repeated administration of l‐dopa methylester produced a significant increase in glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) activity without pyridoxal‐5′‐phosphate in the lateral hypothalamic area and medial amygdaloid nucleus. The effect of l‐dopa on GAD activity was opposite to that of haloperidol in the lateral hypothalamic area.
