Changes in drug-induced stereotyped behavior after 6-OHDA lesions in noradrenaline neurons

Abstract

Drug-induced stereotyped behaviors are often assessed by rating scales where the eventual appearance of sniffing, licking, and biting are rated as increasing intensity of dopaminergic stimulation. A 6-OHDA induced bilateral lesion (4×3-8 μg/4 μl 6-OHDA) in the ascending noradrenaline neurons, lateral to the medial raphe nucleus, of 180 g Wistar rats… (More)
