Voltammetric measurements of catecholamines in the medial prefrontal cortex are infrequent because of lack of chemical selectivity between dopamine and norepinephrine and overlapping anatomical input. Here, we validated electrical stimulation of the ventral tegmental area (VTA) as a method to evoke dopamine rather than norepinephrine release in the mPFC.
