Mice were premedicated with reserpine and alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine to deplete stores of dopamine (DA) (and other neurotransmitters) and to stop DA (and noradrenaline (NA) synthesis. In DA-depleted mice, the mixed alpha 1/alpha 2 agonist clonidine potentiated locomotor stimulation induced by a low dose of apomorphine as measured in automated activity cages.
