The aim of the present study was to examine the effects of the cannabinoid agonist CP 55,940 and the antagonist SR 141716A, alone and in combination, on rat exploratory and anxiety-like behaviour in the holeboard and elevated plus-maze tests. A further aim was to evaluate the effects of these treatments on hypothalamic neurotransmitters. Animals treated(More)
It is well known that female rats developing close to a male in utero show a higher frequency of heterotypical or male-like behavior in adulthood, and have longer anogenital distances. The present investigation was designed to evaluate the in utero masculine influence on the homotypical sexual behavior of male and female rats. Also explored was the(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) on exploratory behaviour and memory, independent of its locomotor suppressive effects. Dopamine (DA) and noradrenaline (NA) contents were determined in the areas of the brain directly related to such behaviours (hippocampus, striatum and amygdala). An acute dose of(More)
In multiparous species such as the rat (in this case the albino Wistar strain), steroid influence during fetal growth is affected by the relative intrauterine position of male and female fetuses and is stronger when the potential effects of contiguity and caudal position are combined. The effect of intrauterine position on gonadal steroid levels in neonatal(More)
