According to the dopamine (DA) hypothesis of schizophrenia and the strong evidence for decreased cerebral lateralization in schizophrenic patients, we postulated that hyperactivity of the dopaminergic system could be associated with a reduced behavioral lateralization in mice. Mice lacking the dopamine transporter (DAT) gene were used as a genetic model of persistent hyperdopaminergia. The DAT null mutation was transferred on C57BL/6JOrl (B6) and DBA/2JOrl (D2) inbred backgrounds for more than… CONTINUE READING
