Psychogenics utilizes a variety of techniques to administer pharmaceutical agents either systemically (intramuscular, intraperitoneal, subcutaneous, intravenous, or orally), or centrally (i.c.v.). In addition, we use retrodialysis to deliver drugs to specific nuclei, such as striatum, hippocampus, and amygdala, where the drugs can directly affect the nuclei and bypass the blood-brain barrier, avoiding peripheral effects of systemically administered drugs. Subsequently we are able to analyze neurotransmitters in situ in the same brain region (single probe microdialysis) or in a different brain nuclei (double probe microdialysis, two probes in two brain regions).
