In this study, we investigate whether an increase in dopamine levels during the perinatal developmental window affects behavior of juvenile male and female Swiss mice. In order to do so, we intraperitoneally administered daily doses of l-Dopa to mice pups beginning from postnatal day 1 (PD1) to PD5, which increased the levels of dopamine and its metabolite, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), in the striatum of the pups. At the age of 4 weeks, we submitted the juvenile males and females to the open field test, elevated plus maze, forced swimming test, and sucrose preference test.
