How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

In three experiments with rats, we analyzed the potential anxiolytic effects of sodium valproate, an anticonvulsant drug that has shown additional pharmacodynamic effects in animal models, including anxiolytic action. Since previous results have revealed that injecting valproate before allowing animals to consume a novel flavor solution resulted in...

Repeated pairings of a neutral context and the effects of haloperidol give rise to conditioned catalepsy when the context is subsequently presented in a drug-free test. In order to confirm whether this response is based on Pavlovian processes, we conducted two experiments involving two manipulations that affect conditioning intensity in classical c...
Article
Previous research have shown that repeated administration of 0.5 mg/kg of haloperidol in a given context gives rise to an increase in activity when spontaneous locomotor activity is recorded in a drug-free test conducted in such context. In order to confirm whether this type of response is based on processes of a Pavlovian nature, we conducted two...

Dopamine antagonist drugs have profound effects on locomotor activity. In particular, the administration of the D2 antagonist haloperidol produces a state that is similar to catalepsy. In order to confirm whether the modulation of the dopaminergic activity produced by haloperidol can act as an unconditioned stimulus, we carried out two experiments...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
When the effects of a drug are repeatedly associated with a neutral stimulus a Conditioned Response (CR) emerges that can be similar or opposed to the unconditional reaction induced by the drug. In previous experiments it has been demonstrated that administration of a dopamine agonist in the presence of a specific context results in a conditioned i...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The aim of this study is to analyze the possible associations between contextual cues and those responses induced by agonists or antagonists of the dopamine system. Our hypothesis anticipates that repeated administration of dopaminergic drugs in the presence of a specific context will result in the establishment of an association between the contex...
