Pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) has been proposed to be one of the responsible sites for dopamine agonist induced contraversive rotation in rats with unilateral dopaminergic denervation. However, previous experiments have not confirmed possible participation of PPN in this rotational behavior. To determine whether contralateral side of the PPN plays a vital role in this rotation, we investigated apomorphine induced rotation in rats with further destruction of unilateral PPN contralateral to the…
