In experiments on male Wistar rats it was established that following a 10 days treatment with low doses (0.1 mg/kg) of apomorphine, tolerance developed to its sedative effects, while aggression to foot-shocks was markedly enhanced. Administration of apomorphine (0.5 mg/kg) and amphetamine (2.5 mg/kg) after chronic low dose apomorphine treatment revealed an(More)
The effects of neuropeptide Y Y(5) receptor antagonist (trans-naphtalene-1-sulphonic acid [4-[(4-amino-quinazolin-2-ylamino)-methyl]-cyclohexylmethyl]-amide hydrochloride; CGP71683A), on food intake, anxiety and locomotor activity were studied. CGP71683A (1-10 mg/kg, i.p.) dose-dependently decreased nocturnal and fasting-induced food intake. CGP71683A did(More)
The motor depressant effects of caerulein and N-propylnorapomorphine (NPA) were compared in male mice. Caerulein (1-50 micrograms/kg SC) in a dose dependent manner depressed the exploratory activity, whereas NPA in lower doses (0.5-10 micrograms/kg SC) decreased the motor activity, but in higher doses (over 50 micrograms/kg) had stimulating effect on the(More)
The experiments on male albino rats have shown that 15 days haloperidol (0.5 mg/kg) and raclopride (1 mg/kg) treatment, but not acute administration, causes the increase of density of sigma receptors in the brain. The number of phencyclidine receptors was also elevated, but this increase was not statistically evident. The behavioral effects of ketamine (5(More)
