Studies of the effects of psychoactive drugs have contributed much to the present knowledge of the role of catecholamines in behavioral physiology. Since drugs are never completely specific, i.e., no drug acts on only one system in the brain, the knowledge derived from pharmacological experiments is beset with a corresponding uncertainty. Evidence from several experiments, preferably carried out using very different methods, is therefore necessary for conclusions about association between a specific system in the brain and a certain behavior. In the following we shall try to expound such evidence about the association of catecholaminergic systems in the brain with behavioral activation and stereotypy, and we shall explore the possible relations of animal experiments with clinical observations comprising also mental phenomena such as thinking and mood.
