Abstract

The effect of intracerebral injection of DPDPE, a highly selective and specific δ-opioid agonist, was investigated on stereotype sniffing and grooming behavior in rats. DPDPE, administered into brain regions with high density of supposed δ-opioid binding sites (caudate-putamen, olfactory tubercle) significantly increased the stereotype grooming and sniffing activity. The result gave functional evidence for the existence of and effects of δ-opioid binding sites.
