Description

Recent evidence indicates that when 1-(3-trifluoromethylphenyl)piperazine (TFMPP) is used as a training drug in the drug discrimination paradigm it produces a stimulus effect that is site-selective at the 5-HT1B receptor. The present study sought to employ this procedure in order to assess the similarity of novel agents to TFMPP. First, rats were trained to reliably discriminate between the stimulus properties of intraperitoneally administered 1.0 mg/kg TFMPP and its vehicle. Following the acquisition of this discrimination, administration of various doses of TFMPP produced a typical dose-response relationship with an ED50 of 0.27 mg/kg. Rats were subsequently tested with another 5-HT1B specific agonist
