I'd be interested to know what behavioural effects you have observed. I worked
as an MRC PhD student at the National Institute got Medical Research in London
between 1979 and 1983. I used 6-OHDA and DSP-4. The results I did get were
pretty unimpressive (yet the HPLC assays sugested very good lesions. Are there
any *new* ideas about what the monoamines are doing - apart from *everything*!
