Inhibition of shaking movements in rats by central administration of cholinergic and adrenergic agents


Shaking movements of the body, similar to that made by a dog when wet (‘wet-dog-shakes’), occur in rats in response to pharmacological stimuli and in response to stimuli associated with cold and skin irritation. In this study, shaking movements, elicited by a variety of stimuli, were inhibited by central administration of nanomolar doses of drugs that act… (More)
