Bottom Line: Dizocilpine (MK-801) is a non-competitive NMDA antagonist that induces schizophreniclike effects.In order to evaluate MK-801 effects on monkeys' PPI, we tested eight capuchin monkeys (Sapajus spp.) using three different doses of MK-801 (0.01; 0.02; 0.03 mg/kg).Results show PPI impairment in acute administration of the highest dose (0.03 mg/kg).

ABSTRACT
Dizocilpine (MK-801) is a non-competitive NMDA antagonist that induces schizophreniclike effects. It is therefore widely used in experimental models of schizophrenia including prepulse inhibition (PPI) impairments in rodents. Nevertheless, MK-801 has never been tested in monkeys on a PPI paradigm. In order to evaluate MK-801 effects on monkeys' PPI, we tested eight capuchin monkeys (Sapajus spp.) using three different doses of MK-801 (0.01; 0.02; 0.03 mg/kg). Results show PPI impairment in acute administration of the highest dose (0.03 mg/kg). PPI impairment induced by MK-801 was reversed by re-exposure to the PPI test throughout treatment trials, in contrast with rodent studies. These results indicate that tolerance effect and familiarization with PPI test may reduce the sensorimotor gating deficits induced by MK-801 in monkeys, suggesting a drug-training interaction.

MK-801 disrupted percent of PPI only in higher dose (0.03 mg/kg) compared to VEH. Bars indicate percent of inhibition of startle response (mean ± SEM, n = 8) for each administrated dose. *Indicates significant difference between 0.03 mg/kg and VEH (p = 0.002) in Friedman’s test.

Mentions: Figure 1 indicates the percentage of inhibition for each randomly assigned administration (VEH and three doses of MK-801), regardless of experimental group. Friedman’s Test indicated a decrease in percentage of inhibition in comparison with VEH only for the higher dose of MK-801 (0.03 mg/kg; X2 = 9.800; p = 0.002; Figure 1, n = 8).
