Effect of deep brain stimulation on nucleus accumbens dopamine in a preclinicla model of antidepressant treatment-resistance
Tye, Susannah, Anderson, Rodney, Hasebe, Kyoko, Mayberg, Helen, Frye, Mark, Berk, Michael, Choi, Doo-Sup, Blaha, Charles, Garris, Paul and Lee, Kendall 2011, Effect of deep brain stimulation on nucleus accumbens dopamine in a preclinicla model of antidepressant treatment-resistance, in 66th Annual Meeting of the Society of Biological Psychiatry : Paradigm Shifts in the Treatment of Psychiatric Disorders: Past Lessons, Current Trends, Future Possibilities, [Society of Biological Psychiatry], [San Francisco, Calif.].
Background / Purpose: To determine if clinically effective deep brain stimulation (DBS) of neurosurgical targets for treatment-resistant depression regulates transient mesoaccumbens dopamine release in control and antidepressant-resistant animals (rats).
Main conclusion: In control rats, DBS stimulation of either the nucleus accumbens or infralimbic cortex significantly attenuated transient mesoaccumbens dopamine efflux, with nucleus accumbens DBS inducing a greater attenuation than infralimbic DBS. High frequency DBS of both targets induced long-term depression of transient accumbens dopamine release, lasting > 2hr post DBS.
Conversely, in antidepressant-resistant rats, infralimbic DBS significantly potentiated transient mesoaccumbens dopamine efflux during stimulation, but failed to induce long-lasting changes in neurotransmission. This suggests that a key mechanism of DBS for treatment-resistant depression is the regulation of dysfunctional mesoaccumbens dopamine neurotransmission.
