Title: The non-NMDA glutamate receptor antagonist GYKI 52466 counteracts locomotor stimulation and anticataleptic activity induced by the NMDA antagonist dizocilpine

Abstract: The effects of the non-NMDA glutamate receptor antagonist GYKI 52466 (2.4 and 4.8 mg/kg, i.p.) on spontaneous locomotor activity and haloperidol-induced catalepsy (0.5 mg/kg, i.p.) were assessed in naive rats and in rats pretreated with the NMDA antagonist dizocilpine (0.08 mg/kg, i.p.). GYKI 52466 given alone did not alter locomotor activity and haloperidol-induced catalepsy, but significantly antagonized the dizocilpine-induced locomotor stimulation and counteracted the anti-cataleptic effects of dizocilpine on haloperidol-induced catalepsy. Thus blockade of non-NMDA glutamate receptors antagonized the behavioural stimulant effects of a NMDA receptor blockade.
