α2-adrenoceptor blockade, pituitary-adrenal hormones, and agonistic interactions in rats
TLDR
Indomethacin, a potent inhibitor of the catecholamine-induced ACTH release completely abolished the effects of the α2 adrenoceptor antagonist CH-38083: the intensity of agonistic interactions, as well as ACTH and corticosterone plasma concentrations, returned to control levels.
The mechanism of action of α2 adrenoceptor blockers as revealed by effects on open field locomotion and escape reactions in the shuttle-box
TLDR
There is no generalized mechanism of action for α2 adrenoceptor blockers; their precise mode of action should be investigated in each particular case.
The Role of Dopamine and Glutamate in Associative Learning by the Pigeon (Columba livia)
TLDR
The role of dopamine and glutamate in apomorphine-induced learning and the Wickens' learning model, and a novel drug-free associative learning An association between coloured grit and food.
Identification of Subpallial Neuronal Populations Across Zebrafish Larval Stages that Express Molecular Markers for the Striatum
TLDR
Findings support the existence of a striatal homologue in larval zebrafish that grows to match the development and increasing behavioural complexity of the organism.

TLDR
Compared to the inhibition of [3-H] dopamine release, much higher neuroleptic concentrations were needed to inhibit the electrically stimulated release of other neurotransmitters--[3- H] acetylcholine, [3,H-a1 (gamma-aminobutyric acid).
