beta-Endorphin injected into the cerebral ventricles of unanesthetized cats produced dose-dependent and long-lasting restlessness, locomotion, stereotyped sideways movements of the head, vacant staring, apprehension and flight accompanied with mydriasis and tremor. The most impressive features of the psychomotor excitation were the locomotion and the sideways movements of the head. Intracerebroventricular nalorphine prevented the psychomotor excitation caused by intracerebroventricular beta… CONTINUE READING
