  • In this study, cocaine (5-20 mg/kg), an indirect dopamine agonist, increased locomotor activity and rearing accompanied with head circling and body shaking in a dose-dependent manner. A high dose of cocaine (40 mg/kg), meaning a toxic dose, slightly induced sniffing and licking. Both SCH23390, a D-1 receptor antagonist, and raclopride, a D-2 antagonist, inhibited all behaviors induced by cocaine, suggesting that the behavioral actions of cocaine may involve the activation of D-1 and D-2… CONTINUE READING
