Abstract D4 dopamine receptors (DRs) are enriched in the primate prefrontal cortex, a brain region implicated in cognitive processes, and mesoprefrontal dopaminergic systems appear to be involved in modulating some cognitive functions of the prefrontal cortex. Despite anatomical localization of D4 DRs within the frontal cortex, the role of these receptors, specifically, in the regulation of cognition or behavior in primates is unknown. In these studies, we sought to learn whether specific… 
Multiple Dopamine Receptor Subtypes in the Medial Prefrontal Cortex of the Rat Regulate Set-Shifting
TLDR
It is suggested that multiple receptors in the PFC are essential for set-shifting and that the mechanisms by which PFC DA mediates behavioral flexibility may be different from those underlying working memory.
Dopamine D4 Receptors Modulate GABAergic Signaling in Pyramidal Neurons of Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
Results show that activation of D4 receptors in PFC pyramidal neurons inhibits GABAA channel functions by regulating the PKA/PP1 signaling complex, which could underlie the D4 modulation of PFC neuronal activity and the actions of antipsychotic drugs.
Subchronic Effects of Phencyclidine on Dopamine and Serotonin Receptors: Implications for Schizophrenia
TLDR
It is suggested that downregulation of striatal D1 receptors and upregulation of cortical 5HT1A receptors may contribute to PCP-induced impairment of cognitive functions in rats, and a minimal role for these receptors in mediating subchronic actions of PCP in adult rats.
Dopamine D4 receptor stimulation contributes to novel object recognition: Relevance to cognitive impairment in schizophrenia
TLDR
D4 receptor agonism has a beneficial effect on novel object recognition in sub-chronic PCP-treated rats and augments the cognitive enhancing efficacy of an atypical antipsychotic drug that lacks affinity for the D4 receptor, lurasidone.
D4 dopamine receptor-specific antagonist improves reversal learning impairment in amphetamine-treated male rats.
TLDR
The results presented imply that blocking of D₄ receptors can reverse the impairment in reversals caused by amphetamine, and support the idea that D⁄ receptors play a role in cue salience.
Clozapine Normalizes Prefrontal Cortex Dopamine Transmission in Monkeys Subchronically Exposed to Phencyclidine
TLDR
The present data support the hypothesis that the therapeutic effects of clozapine in this primate model and perhaps in schizophrenia may be related at least in part to the restoration of DA tone in the prefrontal cortex.
Regulation of Working Memory by Dopamine D4 Receptor in Rats
TLDR
The present findings indicate a significant role of the D4 receptor in working memory, and suggest innovative, D4-based, treatment of cognitive deficits associated with neuropsychiatric disorders.
Molecular Regulation of NMDA Receptors by Dopamine D 4 Signaling in Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
A mechanistic link between D4 and NMDA receptors in P FC pyramidal neurons is identified, suggesting that D4 receptors may play an important role in modulating synaptic plasticity and thus cognitive and emotional processes in PFC circuits.

Phencyclidine Increases Forebrain Monoamine Metabolism in Rats and Monkeys: Modulation by the Isomers of HA966
TLDR
Data demonstrate that in the primate, PCP has potent effects on dopamine transmission in the frontal cortex, a brain region thought to be dysfunctional in schizophrenia.
Selective dopamine D4 receptor antagonists reverse apomorphine-induced blockade of prepulse inhibition
TLDR
Results suggest that dopamine receptor antagonists with selectivity for the D4 dopamine receptor subtype may be effective in the treatment of schizophrenia, while being less likely to produce dyskinesias associated with D2 receptor antagonists.
L-745,870, a subtype selective dopamine D4 receptor antagonist, does not exhibit a neuroleptic-like profile in rodent behavioral tests.
TLDR
D dopamine D4 receptor antagonism is not responsible for the ability of clozapine to attenuate amphetamine-induced hyperactivity and conditioned avoidance responding in rodents and the lack of effect of L-745,870 in these behavioral tests is consistent with the inability of the compound to alleviate psychotic symptoms in humans.
D1 dopamine receptors in prefrontal cortex: involvement in working memory
TLDR
D1 dopamine receptors play a selective role in the mnemonic, predictive functions of the primate prefrontal cortex, and local injections of SCH23390 and SCH39166 induced errors and increased latency in performance on an oculomotor task that required memory-guided saccades.
Clozapine Reverses the Spatial Working Memory Deficits Induced by FG7142 in Monkeys
Cognitive and motor deficits in the acquisition of an object retrieval/detour task in MPTP-treated monkeys.
TLDR
MPTP appears to cause both cognitive and motor deficits in the acquisition of this task 8-12 months after treatment, even in the group of monkeys which never showed gross motor deficits.
6-Hydroxydopamine lesions of the prefrontal cortex in monkeys enhance performance on an analog of the Wisconsin Card Sort Test: possible interactions with subcortical dopamine
TLDR
It is proposed that attentional set shifting is mediated by a balanced interaction between prefrontal and striatal dopamine, and that elevated dopamine contributes to the improvement in Attentional set-shifting ability.
Enduring cognitive deficits and cortical dopamine dysfunction in monkeys after long-term administration of phencyclidine.
TLDR
The data suggest that repeated administration of phencyclidine in monkeys may be useful for studying psychiatric disorders associated with cognitive dysfunction and dopamine hypofunction in the prefrontal cortex, particularly schizophrenia.
Pharmacological characterization of U-101387, a dopamine D4 receptor selective antagonist.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the D4-selective antagonist, U-101387, produces effects that are distinct from those of the nonselective D2 antagonists as well as D3-preferring agents.
