Abstract

Using an automated testing apparatus, the hypermotility induced by amphetamine had previously been found to be inhibited by intracerebroventricular (ICV) administration of salmon calcitonin (CT). The present study used a computer-supported direct observational method to characterize further the interactions of CT and amphetamine. After treatment with amphetamine (1.5 mg/kg, IP), the incidence of rearing, nose poking, and locomotion was reduced in rats that were pretreated with 85 pmol salmon CT ICV; the incidence of sniffing and grooming remained unchanged. CT-induced dyskinesia, a unique consequence of central CT treatment, was attenuated but not abolished by administration of amphetamine. These results support the premise that a compound with receptor recognition characteristics similar to those of salmon CT may act as neurotransmitter-modulator in the central nervous system.
