Methylphenidate-induced impulsivity: pharmacological antagonism by beta-adrenoreceptor blockade.

Milstein JA, Dalley JW, Robbins TW (2010) Methylphenidate-induced impulsivity: pharmacological antagonism by beta-adrenoreceptor blockade. J Psychopharmacol 24:309-321. doi: 10.1177/0269881108098146

Summary: In this work bilateral 20 ng intracortical injections of anti-DBH-SAP (Cat. #IT-03) were used to examine the role of noradrenergic neurons in the control of psychostimulant-induced impulsivity. Although β-adrenoreceptor blockade abolished this impulsivity, lesioning noradrenergic neurons in the cortex had no effect. The data indicate that modulation of impulsive responding in this model is controlled by β-adrenoreceptors.
