The amplitude of the acoustic startle reflex can be reduced reliably when preceded at short intervals by a weak stimulus (prepulse) which itself does not elicit startle. The magnitude of this prepulse inhibition effect is attenuated by several dopamine agonists, such as apomorphine, especially when there is a relatively small difference between the intensity of the prepulse and the intensity of the background noise over which the prepulse is superimposed. One goal of the present experiment was… CONTINUE READING
