Behavioral and neurophysiological effects of Ro 10-5824, a dopamine D4 receptor partial agonist, in common marmosets

  author={Shunsuke Nakazawa and Takeshi Murai and Masanori Miyauchi and Manato Kotani and Kazuhito Ikeda},
RationaleGrowing evidence suggests that dopamine D4 receptors (D4Rs) are involved in controlling executive functions. We have previously demonstrated that Ro 10-5824, a D4R partial agonist, improves the performance of common marmosets in the object retrieval detour (ORD) task. However, the neural mechanisms underlying this improvement are unknown.ObjectivesWe investigated the behavioral and neurophysiological effects of Ro 10-5824 in common marmosets.MethodsThe effects of Ro 10-5824 on… Expand
Dopamine D4 receptor stimulation contributes to novel object recognition: Relevance to cognitive impairment in schizophrenia
D4 receptor agonism has a beneficial effect on novel object recognition in sub-chronic PCP-treated rats and augments the cognitive enhancing efficacy of an atypical antipsychotic drug that lacks affinity for the D4 receptor, lurasidone. Expand
Neuronal correlates of ketamine and walking induced gamma oscillations in the medial prefrontal cortex and mediodorsal thalamus
New evidence is provided that ketamine differentially modulates spiking and gamma power in MD thalamus and mPFC, supporting a potential role for both areas in contributing to ketamine-induced schizophrenia-like symptoms. Expand
Sepsis induced cognitive impairments by disrupting hippocampal parvalbumin interneuron-mediated inhibitory network via a D4-receptor mechanism
It is suggested that sepsis might disrupt PV interneuron-mediated network function that is dependent on the D4 receptor, leading to abnormal γ oscillation and consequent cognitive impairments. Expand
Neural network disturbance in the medial prefrontal cortex might contribute to cognitive impairments induced by neuroinflammation
Neuroinflammation plays a key role in the progression of many neurodegenerative diseases, yet the underlying mechanism remains largely unexplored, so neural network disturbance is proposed as a likely mechanistic linker between neuroinflammation and cognitive impairments in neurodegenersation and possibly other psychiatric disorders.

Recent findings leading to the discovery of selective dopamine D4 receptor ligands for the treatment of widespread diseases.
Ligands showing functional selectivity toward G protein activation or β-arrestin recruitment and the effects of selective D4R ligands on the above-mentioned diseases are discussed. Expand
Detour Behavior of Mice Trained with Transparent, Semitransparent and Opaque Barriers
The study showed that an apparently simple task requiring mice to move around a small barrier constituted in fact a challenge that was strongly affected by the visibility of the target and the most difficult task involved a completely transparent barrier, which forced the mice to resolve a conflict between vision and tactile perception.

Effects of a dopamine D1 agonist on ketamine-induced spatial working memory dysfunction in common marmosets
It is found that a D1 receptor agonist, which has been reported to enhance cognitive function, reversed ketamine-induced cognitive impairment in marmosets, which suggests that the marmoset model could be a useful tool for predicting the clinical efficacy of cognitive-enhancing drugs. Expand
Effects of lurasidone on executive function in common marmosets
It is shown that lurasidone, unlike conventional antipsychotics, improves cognition associated with executive function in common marmosets and suggest that luraidone would be more useful for treatment of schizophrenia cognitive impairment than other antipsychotic drugs. Expand
RO-10-5824 is a selective dopamine D4 receptor agonist that increases novel object exploration in C57 mice
The hypothesis that stimulation of D4R can enhance novelty seeking in mice and that this effect may be dependent on subtle genetic differences is supported. Expand
A-412997, a selective dopamine D4 agonist, improves cognitive performance in rats
A role for the dopamine D4 receptor subtype in cognition is supported in cognition by the potential cognitive enhancing properties of A-412997 in rat models of ADHD and short-term memory and in comparison with the less selective dopamine D 4 receptor agonists PD168077 and CP226269. Expand
Enhancement of gamma activity after selective activation of dopamine D4 receptors in freely moving rats and in a neurodevelopmental model of schizophrenia
The involvement of D4R in cortical gamma oscillations in vivo is demonstrated and this receptor is identified as potential target for pharmacological treatment of cognitive deficits. Expand
The effect of reduced dopamine D4 receptor expression in the 5-choice continuous performance task: Separating response inhibition from premature responding
Reduced Drd4 expression in HT mice impairs attentional performance, but not other behaviors associated with neuropsychiatric disorders, and the use of signal and non-signal stimuli in the 5C-CPT enabled the differentiation of response disinhibition from motor impulsivity in a vigilance task. Expand

Observations suggest that the variability of available D1 receptors might be associated with individual differences in brain functions that require phasic dopamine release, and an interdisciplinary approach combining molecular imaging of dopamine neurotransmission with cognitive neuroscience and clinical psychiatry will provide new perspectives for understanding the neurobiology of neuropsychiatric disorders.

Methylphenidate improves prefrontal cortical cognitive function through α2 adrenoceptor and dopamine D1 receptor actions: Relevance to therapeutic effects in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
The administration of low, oral doses of MPH to rats has effects on PFC cognitive function similar to those seen in humans and patients with ADHD, and both noradrenergic α2 adrenoceptor and dopamine D1 receptor stimulation contribute to cognitive-enhancing effects of MPH. Expand
Lack of dopamine D4 receptor affinity contributes to the procognitive effect of lurasidone
Results suggest that activation of the dopamine D4 receptor may improve executive function, whereas concomitant blockade of dopamine D 4 and D2 receptors may have the opposite effect. Expand
Dopamine, cognitive function, and gamma oscillations: role of D4 receptors
The current state of knowledge of D4R functions in the PFC and hippocampus, two major brain areas implicated in SCZ, is reviewed, with special emphasis given to studies focusing on the potential role of D 4Rs in modulating GABAergic transmission and to an emerging concept of a close synergistic relationship between dopamine/D4R and neuregulin/ErbB4 signaling pathways.
