The present findings indicate, in agreement with previous work, that there may exist at least two types of dopamine (DA) receptors within the neostriatum, one linked to the adenylate cyclase system and one present on axon terminals belonging to corticostriatal fibres. Spiroperidol may have a somewhat higher affinity for the axonic DA receptors than for the DA receptors linked to the adenylate cyclase system. Finally, Bromocriptine has a high affinity for both axonic DA receptors and some DA receptors associated with adenylate cyclase which are localized on neostriatal interneurons.
