|Abstract: ||Voltammetry has been used as a method to measure the concentration of monoaminergic neurotransmitters in-vivo.
Studies have shown that the concentration of neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, varies across small regions of
the brain (less than 1mm). To study the varying concentration of dopamine, a multi-site electrode would be
beneficial. Therefore, the recording sites of our ceramic-based multi-site electrode were coated with carbon and
deployed in the somatosensory cortex of a rat. Known concentrations of dopamine were pressure injected and the
diffusion curve, which is the change in concentration over time, was recorded. The results show that the in-vivo data
does not follow the prediction of the model providing an interesting insight to the uptake of monoamines across the
different layers of the somatosensory cortex.|
