The localization of orexin neuropeptides in the lateral hypothalamus has focused interest on their role in ingestion. The orexigenic neurones in the lateral hypothalamus, however, project widely inExpand
Pharmacological actions of a novel, high-affinity, and selective human dopamine D(3) receptor antagonist, SB-277011-A.
SB-277011-A (trans-N-[4-[2-(6-cyano-1,2,3, 4-tetrahydroisoquinolin-2-yl)ethyl]cyclohexyl]-4-quinolininecarboxamide), is a brain-penetrant, high-affinity, and selective dopamine D(3) receptorExpand
Characterization of SB‐269970‐A, a selective 5‐HT7 receptor antagonist
The novel 5‐HT7 receptor antagonist, SB‐269970‐A, potently displaced [3H]‐5‐CT from human 5‐HT7(a) (pKi 8.9±0.1) and 5‐HT7 receptors in guinea‐pig cortex (pKi 8.3±0.2). 5‐CT stimulated adenylylExpand
Dopamine D3 Receptor Antagonism Inhibits Cocaine-Seeking and Cocaine-Enhanced Brain Reward in Rats
The dopamine D3 receptor is preferentially localized to the mesocorticolimbic dopaminergic system and has been hypothesized to play a role in cocaine addiction. To study the involvement of the D3Expand
Long-lasting changes in behavioural and neuroendocrine indices in the rat following neonatal maternal separation: Gender-dependent effects
Neonatal maternal separation (MS) has been used to model long-term changes in neurochemistry and behaviour associated with exposure to early-life stress. This study characterises changes inExpand
Analysis of gene expression in two large schizophrenia cohorts identifies multiple changes associated with nerve terminal function
Schizophrenia is a severe psychiatric disorder with a world-wide prevalence of 1%. The pathophysiology of the illness is not understood, but is thought to have a strong genetic component with someExpand
A systematic, genome-wide, phenotype-driven mutagenesis programme for gene function studies in the mouse
As the human genome project approaches completion, the challenge for mammalian geneticists is to develop approaches for the systematic determination of mammalian gene function. Mouse mutagenesis willExpand
Use of SHIRPA and discriminant analysis to characterise marked differences in the behavioural phenotype of six inbred mouse strains
Detailed characterisation of six inbred strains of mice commonly used in transgenic and knockout research was carried out using a battery of behavioural tests (SHIRPA) followed by discriminantExpand
5-HT7 receptors.
Following the cloning of the 5-HT(7) receptor in 1993, studies to investigate 5-HT(7) receptor function in native tissues focused on identifying functional correlates that matched the pharmacologicalExpand
