Mesolimbic noradrenaline but not dopamine is responsible for organization of rat behavior in the forced swim test and an anti-immobilizing effect of desipramine.

Abstract

The role of mesolimbic monoaminergic innervation in the organization of rat behavior in the forced swim test (FST) and in the anti-immobilizing action of desipramine (DMI) in the test, was examined. The results can be summarized as follows: neither 6-hydroxydopamine (60HDA)-lesions nor electrical stimulation of the ventral tegmental area (A-10) and intra… (More)
