Two groups of rats (N=4 each) were trained to discriminate either triadimefon (40 mg/kg) or methylphenidate (4 mg/kg) from saline in a two-lever, milk-reinforced drug discrimination paradigm. Dose response functions were determined during 5-min extinction sessions. Both agents produced a dose-related increase in the percentage of responses that occurred on the drug lever. In the substitution phase of the study, rats trained to discriminate triadimefon were tested with methylphenidate and rats trained to discriminate methylphenidate were tested with triadimefon. Triadimefon substituted completely for methylphenidate and methylphenidate substituted completely for triadimefon. The results indicate that triadimefon can function as a discriminative stimulus and that it shares discriminative stimulus properties with methylphenidate.
