The ability of indirect dopamine agonists to induce gnawing in male C57Bl/6J mice was compared to that of direct dopamine agonists acting at dopamine D1 or D2 receptor subtypes. Holes left by the mice on the corrugations of packing cardboard were used as an objective index of gnawing. Indirect dopamine agonists, including dopamine releasers such as(More)
Evidence from structure-activity, molecular biology, ligand binding and behavioral studies has suggested potential differences in the pharmacological effects of indirect dopamine agonists. Striatal dopaminergic neurotransmission is under the regulatory control of GABAergic inputs. The ability of agonists of gamma-aminobutyric acidA (GABAA) receptors to(More)
The present study was designed to provide additional information on the behavioral and pharmacological mechanisms associated with the augmentation of apomorphine-induced gnawing in C57BL/6J mice. (-)-Cocaine enhanced apomorphine-induced gnawing at doses devoid of effects on gnawing when given alone. The effect was stereoselective, with (+)-cocaine devoid of(More)
Decision Model and Notation (DMN) is an OMG standard to ensure that decision models can be shared between multiple stakeholders, and/or created, analyzed and executed on platforms provided by multiple vendors. DMN is already showing promise, with several industrial business rule vendors providing support. This compares well to previous standards like Rule(More)
