Abstract

The effects of apomorphine on spontaneous locomotor activity have been studied in two inbred strains of mice, the C57BL/6 and the DBA/2. In C57 mice low doses of apomorphine reduced motor activity, while higher doses produced hypermotility. In DBA mice the drug always depressed locomotor activity. The results have also been discussed in relation to the different sensitivities to morphine exhibited by the same two strains of mice.
