This study examined the hypothesis that, if the stimulus properties of the D2 agonist quinpirole (QUIN) were mediated by autoreceptors, then pharmacological treatments engendering a decline in dopamine (DA) release and consequent decrease in postsynaptic DA receptor stimulation should result in QUIN-appropriate responding; those that activate postsynaptic… CONTINUE READING
