This study was designed to examine the effect of intra‐striatal administration of MPTP on (+)‐amphetamine‐induced circling behaviour in mice. The results demonstrate that (+)‐amphetamine elicits circling behaviour in MPTP‐lesioned animals. MPTP produced a 70% depletion of striatal dopamine concentration. 1985 Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain
