  • PHENYLETHYLAMINE IN RHESUS-MONKEYS - INTERACTIONS WITH ALPHA-METHYL-PARA-TYROSINE AND L-DOPA AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY Tinklenberg, J. R., Gillin, J. C., Murphy, G. M., Staub, R., WYATT, R. J. 1979; 136 (3): 311-313

    Abstract:

    Rhesus monkeys, pretreated with alpha-methyl-para-tryosine (AMPT) and subsequently injected with phenylethylamine (PEA), did not demonstrate the characteristic amphetamine-like PEA effects. However, when AMPT pretreatment was followed with l-dopa and then PEA injection, PEA effects were restored. These results are compatible with a dopamine theory of schizophrenia.
