Activation of the A10 mesolimbic system by the sigma-receptor agonist (+)SKF 10,047 can be blocked by rimcazole, a novel putative antipsychotic.

Abstract

This study evaluated with electrophysiological and behavioral techniques the ability of rimcazole, a novel putative antipsychotic and selective sigma-receptor ligand, to antagonize the stimulation of the mesocorticolimbic dopamine system by the sigma-agonist, (+)SKF 10,047. Rimcazole effectively blocked the (+)SKF 10,047-induced excitation of ventral… (More)
