To better characterize the neuroleptic-like properties of neurotensin, the dose-related effects of the peptide on the following behavioral phenomena were examined: a) the yawning-penile erection syndrome induced by small doses of the dopamine agonists apomorphine and N-propylnorapomorphine (NPA); b) yawning produced by the anticholinesterase physostigmine, and c) stereotyped climbing and sniffing produced by a larger dose of apomorphine. Several doses of the peptide were injected… CONTINUE READING
