Abstract

Abstract— The effects of nicotine on locomotor activity have been studied in neonate rats exposed to nicotine (1.5 mg kg−1 day−1) throughout the gestational period. Both 14 day old male and female offspring demonstrated an increase in spontaneous locomotor activity when compared with saline‐exposed controls. However, systemic administration of (+)‐amphetamine was effective in attenuating the hyperactivity of these nicotine‐exposed pups. 1988 Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain
