  • Peptide specificity of receptors for angiotensin-induced thirst in the pigeon Columba livia [proceedings] [22].
  • OBJECTIVE: The effects of ketamine (KET), benztropine (BTP), apomorphine (APO), methylphenidatehydrochloride (AMP) and haloperidol (HAL) on sensorimotor gating of the acoustic startle and gating of auditory input into the telelencephalon was assessed in a within-subject design in pigeons (Columba livia) using the prepulse inhibition (PPI) paradigm [23].
  • Ocular melatonin rhythms were measured in pigeons (Columba livia) by in vivo microdialysis [24].
  • The significance of DA in a color discrimination reversal was assessed by evaluating the effects of bilateral infusions of the D1 receptor antagonist SCH 23390 into the NCL of pigeons (Columba livia) [25].
  • Rotundal neurons in pigeons (Columba livia) were examined for the effects of glutamate and its agonists NMDA and AMPA, antagonists CPP and CNQX, as well as of GABA and its antagonist bicuculline, on visual and tectal stimulation-evoked responses [26].
