Ontogeny of behavioral sensitization in the rat: effects of direct and indirect dopamine agonists

Abstract

In the present study, the abilities of NPA (a direct DA receptor agonist) and amphetamine (an indirect DA receptor agonist) to induce short- and long-term behavioral sensitization were assessed in 11- and 17-day-old rats (age at initial injection).
