Abstract

The contralateral rotational behaviour produced by apomorphine and caffeine has been studied in 100 rats with unilateral lesion of the nigrostriatal pathway induced with 6-OHDA. Rats with a two-peak rotational pattern induced by apomorphine, showed a greater number of contralateral turns, induced by apomorphine and caffeine, than rats which did not show this rotational pattern. A correlation was observed between the number of rotations induced by apomorphine and those induced by caffeine. A relationship between the two-peak rotational pattern induced by apomorphine and the initial-peak pattern induced by caffeine was also observed.
