    Abstract The primary objective of this study was to determine whether the development of behavioral sensitization to the putative dopamine D[sub 3] receptor agonist 7-OH-DPAT could be prevented by either selective D[sub 1]-type or D[sub 2]-type dopamine receptor antagonists. In three...

  • Evidence that orexin-A-evoked grooming in the rat is mediated by orexin-1 (OX[sub 1] ) receptors, with downstream 5-HT[sub 2C] receptor involvement. Duxon, Mark S.; Stretton, Jennifer; Starr, Kathryn; Jones, Declan N.C.; Holland, Vicky; Riley, Graham; Jerman, Jeff; Brough, Stephen; Smart, Darren; Johns, Amanda; Chan, Wai; Porter, Rod A.; Upton, Neil // Psychopharmacology;2001, Vol. 153 Issue 2, p203 

    Abstract Rationale: Orexins A and B have recently been discovered and shown to be derived from preproorexin, primarily expressed in the rat hypothalamus. Orexin-A has been ascribed a number of in vivo functions in the rat after intracerebroventricular (ICV) administration, including hyperphagia,...

    Previous research (Weatherly, Stout, Rue, & Melville, 2000) has shown that rats' rates of lever pressing for low-concentration liquid-sucrose reinforcement in the first half of an experimental session are higher when food pellets, rather than the same sucrose reinforcers, are delivered in the...

    Two experiments examined the positive extradimensional shift effect of overtraining in concurrent mixed discriminations. In Experiment 1 rats were trained on two concurrent simultaneous discriminations and then either reversed on both tasks (Group W), or reversed on one task while a second novel...

    1 Tiopronin (N-(2-mercaptopropionyl)-glycine) is a drug with a free thiol (sulphydryl) group that is used clinically. We have reported previously that tiopronin protects rat kidney slices in vitro from the nephrotoxic effects of cisplatin and does not reduce the antitumour activity of cisplatin....
