The effects of several doses of L-DOPA (25, 50, 75 and 100 mg/kg) on air-stepping were studied in rats on the day of birth and on 5, 10, 15 and 20 days of age. Occurrence of air-stepping increased and latency to air-stepping generally decreased with dose except at 10 days of age; duration of air-stepping increased with increasing dose of L-DOPA at every age… CONTINUE READING
