The method of in vitro receptor autoradiography was used to map the distribution of spirodecanone binding-sites in the rat hippocampal region. Incubations of horizontal sections through the hippocampus with [3H]spiperone (1 nM) resulted in dense labeling restricted to the pyramid cell layer in CA1, the parasubiculum and layers I and II of the entorhinal area (EA), while the other hippocampal subfields contained moderate to low binding. ADTN, serotonin, ketanserin and mianserin (1-100 microM) all failed to displace the [3H]spiperone in the layers of densest binding, while displacement of the [3H]spiperone binding occurred with high concentrations of spiperone (1 microM) and haloperidol (100 microM). Intra-entorhinal injections of the neurotoxin ibotenic acid prevented [3H]spiperone binding to layers I and II of the EA, while transections of septal and commissural afferents or the degeneration of serotonin and noradrenaline terminals appeared not to reduce the [3H]spiperone binding in any part of the hippocampal region. These findings suggest that spirodecanone binding-sites are located on intrinsic neurons in restricted laminae of the hippocampal region.
