The effects of chronically ablating the serotoninergic inputs to various regions of the rat brain on the ability to solve a feature-negative discrimination was measured. After intracerebroventricular administration of the specific neurotoxin 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine, the rats exhibited an impaired capacity to solve such a discrimination, irrespective of(More)
Small doses of clonidine produce hypoactivity in mice and rats, probably by stimulating pre-synaptic alpha 2-adrenoceptors in the brain. When mice were injected with desmethylimipramine (DMI, 5 mg/kg) before clonidine it attenuated the hypoactivity, while pretreatment with amitriptyline (5 mg/kg) or mianserin (5 mg/kg) potentiated this behaviour. In rats,(More)
