The actions of dl-cathinone and d-amphetamine on operant responding were compared in rats. The effects of both drugs were predominantly suppressive on behaviour maintained by a Fixed Interval 2 minutes schedule of reward. Both drugs had equivalent durations of action in suppressing responding. The actions of the two compounds could be described as rate-dependent, although their rate-dependent actions could most parsimoniously be attributed to drug-induced rate constancy.
