To elucidate the critical role of various neurotransmitters in timing processes in humans, the effects of 3 mg of haloperidol, a dopamine receptor antagonist, 11 mg of the benzodiazepine midazolam, and 1 mg of scopolamine, a cholinergic receptor antagonist, were compared in a placebo… CONTINUE READING
