Recent examination of the mixed dopamine agonist apomorphine suggests that dopamine inhibits both passive avoidance and response suppression learning. The present study investigated the effects of selective dopamine agonists on memory consolidation using a passive avoidance task in the day-old chick. The dopamine D1 agonist SKF 38393, the D2 agonist quinpirole, and the D4 agonist PD 168077 all failed to disrupt memory consolidation when injected immediately after training. However, chicks… 
Facilitation and disruption of memory for the passive avoidance task in the day-old chick using dopamine D1 receptor compounds
TLDR
An important role for dopamine D1-dependent mechanisms in memory formation in the chick is indicated, with the D1 agonist found to facilitate memory in chicks given a weak training experience.
ROLE OF CHOLINERGIC SYSTEM ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF MEMORY AND ITS INTERACTION WITH DOPAMINERGIC SYSTEM
TLDR
Results suggest that, cholinergic system in retrieval phase is very critical and there was no interaction between the two systems in the post-training phase.
Haloperidol impairs auditory filial imprinting and modulates monoaminergic neurotransmission in an imprinting‐relevant forebrain area of the domestic chick
TLDR
The modulation of dopaminergic function and its interaction with other neurotransmitter systems in a higher associative forebrain region of the juvenile avian brain displays similar neurochemical characteristics as the adult mammalian prefrontal cortex.
Better to be bimodal: the interaction of color and odor on learning and memory
TLDR
Day-old domestic chicks were used to examine whether a common insect warning odor (pyrazine) enhanced learning and memorability of yellow prey, a common warning color, and results suggest that much is to be gained from signaling multimodally, for both models and mimetic prey species.

TLDR
Time-of-retention data suggested that the memory disruption occurred from 120 min after learning, leading to the suggestion that dopamine-related modulation of the training experience may be involved in late-memory formation processes.
Impairment by apomorphine of one-trial passive avoidance learning in mice: The opposing roles of the dopamine and noradrenaline systems
TLDR
Pretraining administration of the dopaminergic stimulant apomorphicine impaired retention performance of mice on a one-trial passive avoidance task and, when combined with a subeffective dose of apomorphine, impaired passive avoidance learning, interpreted in terms of the proposed inhibitory actions exerted by central noradrenaline on dopamine systems of the brain.

TLDR
It is indicated that activation of dopamine receptors retards response suppression learning of the 4-day-old chick, but functional changes in central dopaminergic mechanisms are not primarily responsible for the normal age-dependent improvement in response suppressionLearning of the young chick.

Involvement of biogenic amines in drug-induced aggressive pecking in chicks
TLDR
Aggressive pecking induced by AMP and IMI may be mediated by different amine systems, and serotonin was further implicated in IMI pecking in a third experiment, where chronic PCPA pretreatment significantly decreased IMI, but not AMP pecking.
