-If your interested in the effects of Locus Coereleus lesion sin rats and 
their behaivoual effects, your best be is to pisk up an old review by 
Oades (1984 or 1985) in Neuroscience and Biobehavioral reviews..."The 
role of noradrenaline in Tuning and Dopamine in switching behaviora in 
the CNS" or something like that. Although it's old, it has stimulated a 
lot of reseach. Mostly on dopamine but some on N.adr.
