Unfortunately, the good doctor did not answer your question.  The answer
is "yes", there are lots of investigators doing superfusion to study
transmitter release, especially in tissue slices.  The use of in vivo
microdialysis is greatly overrated (IMHO), except under certain 
experimental conditions, when it is, indeed, useful.

If you need references or would like additional information on super-
fusion systems, let me know.
