Intracerebroventricularly administered dopamine produced dose dependent hyperthermia in rabbits. Haloperidol, a D1 receptor blocker produced consistent hypothermia, whereas D2 receptor blocker metoclopramide produced hyperthermia, pretreatment with haloperidol competitively blocked the hyperthermic response of dopamine. Pretreatment with metoclopramide(More)
