Influence of cholinergic receptor blockade on drug-induced prolactin release in the monkey.

The influence of varying doses of perphenazine, thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) and serotonin on prolactin release was examined in two species of monkeys: rhesus (Macaca mulatta) and crab-eating (Macaca fascicularis).
