The adenosine A2A agonist CGS 21680 reverses the reduction in prepulse inhibition of the acoustic startle response induced by phencyclidine, but not by apomorphine and amphetamine

Abstract

Systemic administration of the selective adenosine A2A agonist CGS 21680, at the highest dose tested (0.5 mg/kg), selectively reversed the reduction in prepulse inhibition (PPI) of the acoustic startle response induced by the NMDA antagonist phencyclidine (PCP), but not by the dopaminergic agonists apomorphine and amphetamine. CGS 21680 by itself was… (More)
