Dopamine agonists facilitate, and antagonists inhibit, conditioned preparatory behaviors in rats. Similar effects are demonstrated on an unconditioned preparatory behavior: predatory search and contact of a moving artificial prey stimulus. Apomorphine (0.1, 0.2 mg/kg), a direct agonist, had no effect relative to a within-subject injection of saline vehicle… CONTINUE READING
