Abstract

Rats were trained to discriminate phenylethylamine (PEA) at 30 mg/kg (IP). In subsequent generalization tests, it was found that naloxone had no effect on the discriminative stimulus (cue) properties of PEA, but it did potentiate PEA's dose-related rate suppressant effects. Thus the potentiation by naloxone of PEA's effects was behaviourally specific and… (More)
