Abstract

Abstract Circadian rhythm in motor activity was studied with an Animex motimeter in six strains of rats (ACI, BH, BS, DA, LEW, TNO) synchronized by a 12 hr light: 12 hr darkk cycle. ANOVA revealed significant interstrain differences in motor activity as well as in the concentration and turnover of central noradrenaline and dopamine. Strain-dependent differences were also found with regard to tyrosine hydroxylase inhibition on motor activity. However, no significant interstrain correlations were found between endogenous concentration and/or turnover rates of the catecholamines and motor activity in normal and drug-treated rats.
