Normal rats with a unilateral ibotenic acid lesion of substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNR, n = 12) or globus pallidus (GP, n = 12) were challenged systemically with the mixed dopaminergic agonist apomorphine (0.5 and 1.5 mg/kg) and the indirect acting d-amphetamine (1.5 mg/kg). The low dose of apomorphine produced a weak contralateral rotation only in the SNR-lesioned group, which showed an intense ipsilateral rotation following the administration of the higher dose. GP-lesioned rats also… CONTINUE READING
