Our previous studies showed differences in striatal D(2) receptor functional activity between two different rat parkinsonian models, with lesions induced by 6-hydroxydopamine injection in the striatum and in the medial forebrain bundle (MFB) at both early (4 weeks) and later (6 months) stages after lesioning. The present study compared behavioral changes, including rotational movements induced by methamphetamine and bromocriptine, and the stepping test, in both models at both stages. No… CONTINUE READING
