  • RationaleThe effect of LSD in humans has been described as occurring in two temporal phases. The behavioral effects in rats also occur in two temporal phases: an initial suppression of exploration followed by increased locomotor activity.ObjectivesWe decided to investigate this phenomenon from the perspective that the pharmacology might have relevance to the neurochemical mechanisms underlying psychosis.MethodsTwenty-five male Sprague–Dawley rats were trained to discriminate LSD (186 nmol/kg, 0… CONTINUE READING
