The tyramines: are they involved in the psychoses?

Biological Psychiatry
A A Boulton, A V Juorio


On the evidence that the administration of some antipsychotic drugs and d-amphetamine, separately and in combination, induced changes in the concentration of striatal p- and m-tyramine, it is proposed that the tyramines may possess a role in neural function. This function could be as neurotransmitters in specific neuronal systems or as synaptic activators.
