Effects of norepinephrine and serotonin uptake inhibitors on the schedule-controlled behavior of the pigeon

, : Effects of norepinephrine and serotonin uptake inhibitors on the schedule-controlled behavior of the pigeon. Pharmacology, Biochemistry, and Behavior 20(3): 391-395

The effects of nortriptyline, amitriptyline, desipramine, chlorimipramine, protriptyline, doxepin, nisoxetine, fluoxetine and iprindole were determined on responding by pigeons under a multiple fixed-ratio 30-response, fixed-interval 10-minute schedule of grain presentation. Those drugs which have been shown to block uptake of norepinephrine decreased fixed-interval quarter-life values. Those which are considered most selective as norepinephrine uptake inhibitors also increased overall fixed-interval responding. These increases in fixed-interval responding, both on local and overall rates, in pigeons appear to be due to the actions of these drugs to inhibit uptake of norepinephrine rather than to other actions.
