Abstract

Normal haloperidol-injected rats were tested on a standard catalepsy bar test, using varying bar heights, diameters, and descent latency measurement criteria. The results demonstrated that all these small procedural differences can markedly influence the duration of catalepsy exhibited by rats and should be standardized in catalepsy experiments.
