The involvemet of serotonergic neurons in the central nervous system as the possible mechanism for slow head-shaking behavior induced by methamphetamine in rats


Following the IV administration of d-methamphetamine (MA), rats showed slow head shaking (SHS) and stereotyped gnawing (SG) behaviors in a dose-dependent manner. Methysergide, cyproheptadine, and p-chlorophenylalanine given intracerebroventricularly (ICV) or systemically significantly blocked SHS behavior induced by 10 mg/kg MA. Combined administration of l… (More)
