An analysis was made of the movement subsystems involved in the stereotyped behaviors and electroencephalographic (EEG) activity that appear in rats given the anticholinergic drug atropine sulfate (50-75 mg/kg). One form of stereotypy occurred when the drugged faced the closed end of an alleyway. Instead of scanning briefly and then turning around to face the open end, as undrugged rats do, they typically "trapped", i.e., they continued to engage in rapid, repetitive scanning by the snout up… CONTINUE READING
