N normal phenotype
• mice show normal baseline locomotion, exploratory rearing, and center occupancy in the open field, and no evident spontaneous motor stereotypies
• locomotor activation is attenuated after amphetamine administration
• mutants show increased motor stereotypies compared to controls after a high dose of amphetamine administration, consisting of repetitive focused sniffing and orofacial movements
• pretreatment with haloperidol, a dopamine D2 receptor antagonist, eliminates the stereotypies induced by amphetamine
• mice infused with histamine intracerebroventricularly immediately before administration of amphetamine show delayed and reduced amplitude of stereotypy

nervous system
• mice exhibit higher dopamine D2 and D3 receptor density in the substantia nigra than controls
• mice exhibit a reduction in dopamine D2 and D3 receptor density in the dorsal striatum
• mice exhibit a deficit in auditory PPI at three prepulse intensities
