  • Previous studies have shown that amphetamine significantly alters operant responding on the behavior maintained on a schedule of differential reinforcement of low-rate (DRL). As such, behavioral deficiency of DRL responding has been observed by the drug-induced increase of non-reinforced responses and a leftward shift of inter-response time (IRT) curve on DRL responding in the rat. However, the neurochemical basis for amphetamine-induced DRL behavioral alternations remain to be elucidated. The… CONTINUE READING
