The dose response of blink rates to apomorphine was studied before and after holoperidol treatment in 4 monkeys. Seven days following holoperidol discontinuation there was no alteration of baseline blink rates but the blink rote response to low dose opomorphine was significantly increased indicating that haloperidol treatment had sensitized the animals.
