Description

1. Para-chlorophenylalanine (p-CPA), a competitive inhibitor of the serotonin (5-HT) synthesis enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase, was administered to rats at a dosage (100 mg/kg daily for 3 days) that depletes 5-HT. 2. Different groups of these rats were previously trained to discriminate the interoceptive stimuli produced by amphetamine, cathinone, 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA),
