Locomotor-activating effects of the D2 agonist bromocriptine show environment-specific sensitization following repeated injections

Abstract

Biphasic effects of bromocriptine (2.0, 5.0, 10.0, and 20.0 mg/kg IP) on locomotion were quantified in photocell activity boxes in rats. Following early suppression of activity, bromocriptine produced a clear, dose-dependent increase in locomotion that lasted several hours. When a low dose of bromocriptine (5.0 mg/kg) was administered daily over a 3-week… (More)
