Abstract

The influence of caffeine on amphetamine- and apomorphine-induced stereotyped behavior in guinea pigs has been investigated. Caffeine potentiated amphetamine- and apomorphine-induced stereotyped behavior. These observations support the concept that a dopamine sensitive adenyl cyclase and cAMP play a role in mediating the effect of dopamine at specific striatal dopamine receptors.
