Handling-induced convulsions in the quaking mouse can be blocked by: phenobarbital, pentobarbital or phenytoin; postsynaptic alpha-adrenoceptor agonists (noradrenaline, phenylephrine, CRL 40028); presynaptic alpha-adrenoceptor blockers (yohimbine, mianserine); catecholamine liberating agent (amphetamine); noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (cocaine,(More)
2-N,N-dipropylamino 5,6-dihydroxytetralin (nPr2 ADTN), a potent dopaminergic agonist, induces the same polyphasic effects observed with apomorphine by Protais et al., (1983). The dose related sequence of behaviours in mice can be summed up as followed: to 0.9 to 3.9, a decrease in motor activity without any other effects; to 7.8 to 15.6(More)
The antagonism of hypothermia induced by two doses of apomorphine (1 to 16 mg/kg) is proposed as an improved screening test for both neuroleptics and antidepressants. Low dose apomorphine-induced hypothermia (1 mg/kg) differentiates sulpiride-like neuroleptics (which better antagonize this effect of apomorphine than other effects such as stereotyped(More)
Some of the substances studied modified the effects of the two barbiturates as expected and in the same direction: --chlorpromazine and diazepam increased the effects; --amphetamine and caffeine decreased them. Barbital, unlike pentobarbital, undergoes almost no metabolic transformation. This explains why pentobarbital is potentiated in the presence of(More)
We studied 13 known or potential antidepressants, choosen in different pharmacological classes: desipramine, imipramine, nialamide, dexamphetamine, AHR 1118, amineptine, iprindole, mianserine, nomifensine, salbutamol, TRH viloxazine, zimelidine. Each of these compounds was studied on 8 psychopharmacological tests: motor activity, reserpine induced(More)
U-43,465F (8-chloro-1-[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]-6-phenyl-4H-s-triazolo [4,3-a][1,4]benzodiazepine p-toluene sulfonate) showed two fold activity at 32 mg/kg i.p.: antipunishment activity inhibited by the benzodiazepine receptor antagonist Ro 15-1788, and an antidepressant-like reversal of apomorphine-induced hypothermia, antagonized by the beta-adrenergic(More)
Norepinephrine (NE), octopamine (OA) and phenethylamine (PEA) are easily destroyed by M.A.O. but we could show, even injected intraperitoneally that they are active upon tests used generally to reveal an "antidepressant" effect. This effect is especially studied by using antagonism of apomorphine, reserpine, oxotremorine-induced hypothermia. The(More)
Several studies have shown that the noradrenergic system, or more precisely the alpha-adrenergic system, is implicated in the mechanism of action of DPH (Rudzik et al., 1966). In the present study we have demonstrated that prazosin, a relatively specific blocker of post-synaptic alpha-adrenergic receptors, antagonized the anticonvulsant activity of DPH on 3(More)

The involvement of noradrenergic processes in both the behavioral suppression and release of food intake induced by diazepam, was investigated using the novelty-induced inhibition of food consumption model. Clonidine (7.5-60 micrograms/kg i.p.) and another alpha 2-noradrenergic receptor agonist, guanfacine (0.25-1 mg/kg i.p.), increased the food intake of(More)
