    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...

    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...
