Abstract

Rats shifted from 32 to 4% sucrose consume substantially less of the 4% solution than animals that have not had prior experience with the 32% sucrose. This negative contrast effect was not substantially influenced by chlorpromazine (1, 3, and 5 mg/kg) or haloperidol (0.1, 0.5, and 1.0 mg/kg). Haloperidol decreased overall lick frequency, but this decrease occurred proportionately in shifted and unshifted rats, leaving contrast intact. The benzodiazepine flurazepam (5, 10, and 20 mg/kg), included as a positive control, reduced contrast at the two highest doses. The results suggest thav neuroleptics do not disrupt consummatory contrast and that dopaminergic antagonists may not influence reward relativity.
