Effects of dopaminergic and cholinergic interactions on rat behavior.

The present work studied the effects of dopaminergic and muscarinic receptor agonists and antagonists on rat locomotor activity and catalepsy. Results showed that carbachol at the highest dose used (10 mg/kg, p.o.) decreased and pimozide at the dose used abolished locomotor activity. Atropine at a low dose (1 mg/kg, p.o.) increased and at a high dose… CONTINUE READING
