PMID-17216714 Motor and cognitive functions of the neostriatum during bilateral blocking of its dopamine receptors

  • systemic application of D1 selective blockers reduced learning in rats
    • probably this effect is not neostriatal:
  • local application of the same blocker on the cortex did not markedly affect learning, though it did effect initiation errors
  • D2 antagonist (raclopride) locally applied to the striatum blocked learning.
