Rats with unilateral dopamine (DA) depletions (hemi-Parkinson rats) display directional biases in their locomotion in spontaneous and drug induced tests. These biases have been explained as being due either to changed responsiveness to sensory stimulation, changes in motor ability, or to central changes, but as yet their basis is not fully understood. The purpose of the present experiment is to examine the posture of immobility and the posture and strategies of locomotion in rats with… CONTINUE READING
