A group of six rats was trained to discriminate the effects of para-methoxyamphetamine (PMA; 3 mg/kg, 15 min pretreatment time) and saline in a two-lever choice task using a fixed ratio 10 schedule of water reinforcement. Stimulus control was assumed to be present when 80% or more of the first ten responses were appropriate for the treatment condition on each of five consecutive days. PMA established stimulus control in each of the subjects. The mean number of sessions prior to the onset of… Expand
The reinforcing and discriminative stimulus properties of para-ethoxy- and para-methoxyamphetamine
TLDR
The data suggest that neither PMA nor PEA are reinforcing in rats, and do not possess amphetamine-like discriminative properties. Expand
Stimulus effects of ibogaine in rats trained with yohimbine, DOM, or LSD
TLDR
The present data suggest the involvement of 5-HT2 receptor activity, and the possibility of a 5- HT1A contribution, in the stimulus properties of ibogaine, which was compared with those of yohimbine, an alpha 2-adrenoceptor antagonist, 2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylamphetamine, and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), a nonspecific5-HT agonist.

Antagonism of phencyclidine-induced stimulus control in the rat by other psychoactive drugs

TLDR
The data suggest complex interactions between PCP-induced stimulus control and a variety of psychoactive drugs including GHB, an agent with no known affinity for serotonergic receptors. Expand
Psilocybin-induced stimulus control in the rat
Although psilocybin has been trained in the rat as a discriminative stimulus, little is known of the pharmacological receptors essential for stimulus control. In the present investigation rats wereExpand
Behavioral and Biochemical Evidence for a Nonessential 5-HT2A Component of the Ibogaine-Induced Discriminative Stimulus
TLDR
The results of these studies suggest that although ibogaine may produce some of its effects via interactions with 5-HT2A receptors, these do not appear to be essential to the Ibogaine-induced discriminative stimulus. Expand
Interactions of clozapine with the stimulus effects of DOM and LSD
TLDR
The atropine test results do not exclude the possibility of an antimuscarinic component in the observed attenuation of DOM and LSD stimulus effects by clozapine. Expand
Yohimbine and serotonergic agonists: Stimulus properties and receptor binding
The present investigation was designed to compare the discriminative stimulus properties of yohimbine and purported agonists at the serotonin (5‐HT)1A receptor. To that end, groups of rats wereExpand
Interactions between serotonergic agonists and antagonists in rats trained with LSD as a discriminative stimulus
TLDR
Findings suggest more complex interactions between these drugs than has previously been assumed and an unexpected result was potentiation of the stimulus or disruptive effects of certain doses of 8-OH-DPAT and TFMPP by pizotyline and pirenperone. Expand
The Paradox of 5-Methoxy-N,N-Dimethyltryptamine An Indoleamine Hallucinogen That Induces Stimulus Control Via 5-HT1A Receptors
TLDR
It is concluded that 5-MeO-DMT differs from DOM with respect to the serotonergic element that mediates stimulus control in the rat, but that it shares with DOM a functionally significant interaction with 5-HT2 receptors. Expand
Structure-activity studies on methoxy-substituted phenylisopropylamines using drug discrimination methodology
TLDR
Of three possible mono-methoxyphenylisopropylamines, all three produced amphetamine-appropriate responding, but none was as potent as racemic amphetamine. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that most psychomotor stimulants, although having different structures, are likely to produce discriminative stimulus properties similar to d-amphetamine. Expand
The discriminative stimulus properties of LSD: Mechanisms of action
TLDR
The data indicate that the discriminative stimulus properties of LSD may be mediated by post-synaptic serotonin or LSD receptors, and dopamine receptors did not seem to be involved in the LSD stimulus cue. Expand
Behavioural Effects of some Derivatives of Amphetamine and LSD and their Significance
TLDR
Results suggest that, if these compounds bond, they do so using their N atoms, in which case the hypothesis would predict that the 3-compound (not yet tested) would be an active hallucinogen. Expand
Hallucinogenic phenylethylamines: interactions with serotonin turnover and receptors.
TLDR
The hypothesis that the 5-HT receptor stimulation induced by the psychotomimetic phenylethylamines is mainly responsible for their pharmacological and hallucinogenic properties is proposed. Expand
5‐HYDROXYTRYPTAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITORS BLOCK para‐METHOXYAMPHETAMINE‐INDUCED 5‐HT RELEASE
  • L. Tseng

TLDR
It is proposed that these 5‐ HT uptake inhibitors block the increased MTA caused by PMA by preventing the PMA‐induced release of 5‐HT in the central nervous system. Expand
The identification of LSD-like hallucinogens using the chronic spinal dog.
TLDR
The results of these studies indicate that psilocin, mescaline, dimethyltryptamine and tryptamine are LSD-like drugs, and DOM, DOB, DMA, and TMA are predominantly LSD- like drugs but do have some amphetamine-like action. Expand
Serotonin accumulation after monoamine oxidase inhibition. Effects of decreased impulse flow and of some anti-depressants and hallucinogens.
TLDR
The results support previous suggestions that normal control of synthesis of 5-HT by end-product inhibition or impulse-controlled feedback does not function in rats treated with a MAO inhibitor. Expand

TLDR
Certain characteristics of the actions of these compounds indicate that the mechanism of action differs from that of epinephrine, and Ergot alkaloids, Priscol, 2-(piperidinomethyl)-6-methoxy tetralone and dibenamine are unsatisfactory adrenolytic agents when applied to the frogs heart. Expand

The results suggest that substitution in the para-position is important for hallucinogenic properties in amphetamines. Expand
