AFTER lesions have been made in one side of the nigro-striatal system, rats have been found to rotate when administered drugs which release dopamine (such as amphetamines) or activate dopamine receptors (such as apomorphine) in the corpus striatum (see for example refs 1 and 2). Because this circling effect is specific to the nigro-striatal system3 and because it has been established that rats consistently rotate contralateral to the more active striatum (for example ref. 4), the lesion… CONTINUE READING
