N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) (0.5 and 1 microgram/0.5 microliter) bilaterally injected into the anterodorsal striatum of rats reduced locomotion, sniffing, rearing and feeding upon presentation of palatable food. Consequently, the number of all behavioural bouts exhibited was reduced and the duration of akinetic phases was prolonged. These results are(More)
The effects of haloperidol and apomorphine on unconditioned behaviour of rats were tested in an open field. Systemically injected, the dopamine-antagonist haloperidol (0.01-0.3 mg/kg i.p.) decreased feeding and locomotion, but the average bout-length of grooming was increased at higher doses. Intrastriatally injected haloperidol (2.5 μg/0.5 μl) markedly(More)
