Abstract

Electrolytic lesions of the dorsal raphe nucleus were found to attenuate haloperidol-induced catalepsy, but did not alter haloperidol's ability to suppress the intake of a highly palatable saccharin/glucose mixture by nondeprived rats. These results suggest that neuroleptic-induced suppression of the drinking of palatable fluids is not secondary to the types of motor deficits that result in catalepsy.
