Many workers have argued that genetic hyperactivity in humans (and in the spontaneously hypertensive ratmodel of ADHD) is caused by impaired dopaminergic function (Carey et al. 1998; Sagvolden and Sergeant1998; Papa et al. 2000; Russell 2000; Grace 2001; AnimalsSolanto et al. 2001), although ADHD has also been asso- Mice from generations 23 and 24 of an artificial selection experi- ciated with impaired noradrenergic function (Solanto ment for high voluntary wheel-running behavior were studied (see 1998; Arnsten 2000, 2001).

Rooms were con-trolled for temperature (~22°C) and photoperiod 12-h/12-hlight/dark (lights on at 0700 hours, central standard time).
To simplify analyses, only females were used in the present study. Different groups of mice were used for each of the drug tri-als that were conducted. For the cocaine trial, generation-23 ani-mals that were not among those chosen as breeders to propagatelines to the 24th generation were used. Because exclusion of thetop runners would have caused samples from the selected lines tobe biased downward with respect to wheel running, the lowest-running animals in selected-line families were also excluded. Ofthe remaining mice, 48 were randomly chosen to participate (sixper line, each from a different family).

Even though animals in the GBR 12909 obscure the actual relationship between cage activity and line type and fluoxetine trials were younger than the mice in the cocaine group, their running profiles were similar at the time they weregiven injections (see Results). Thus, we believe it is appropriate tocompare results across all three drug trials. Otherwise, the GBR 12909 and fluoxetine trials proceeded similarly to that for cocaine.

The first Baseline wheel running was compared between selected and 10 min was not included because wheel running was significantly control lines by considering mean total revolutions during the 2 days preceding injections for all three drug trials combined. Data were analyzed using a two-way analysis of covariance(ANCOVA), including line type, drug trial, and the interaction be-tween drug trial and line type as cofactors.
To determine whether selected and control animals differen- tially responded to the drugs, both the absolute and proportionalresponses were analyzed, because baseline wheel running differedbetween the selected and control lines (see Results). For the ab-solute response, the wheel-running variables (total revolutions,minutes with any revolutions, or average speed 10–40 min post-injection) were analyzed using repeated-measures two-factorANCOVA to test for an interaction between dose and line type (re-peated measures was needed to account for the fact that the threedoses were applied to the same individual on three separate days).
Absolute responses were also analyzed separately for selected andcontrol lines to determine the effects of the drugs in each line type. For the separate analyses, a one-factor, repeated-measuresANCOVA was used to determine the effect of dose on the wheel-running variables. To improve normality of residuals, minuteswith any wheel rotations were always power transformed (see Y-axis legend of Fig. 3).
For the proportional response, a one-factor ANCOVA was used to test for a line type effect on the ratio of the wheel-runningresponse after the high-dose injection to the response after the ve-hicle injection. To improve normality of residuals, the proportion-al responses were always rank transformed (data were highly posi-tively skewed otherwise).
To test for rate dependency of drug effects, linear regression was used to determine the relationship between response to thehigh dose injection and baseline response to the vehicle injection.
No covariates were entered in these analyses, because values foreach individual were regressed against each other.
For the cage activity data, a one-factor ANCOVA was used to test for a line type effect on the total activity scores of the animals.
Separate analyses were conducted for the first (novel) and second24 h of activity. Body mass and the distances of the photobeams tothe floor of the cages were always included as covariates.

On the first day, both selected and control animals ex-hibited relatively high levels of spontaneous activity(Fig. 5). By the second day, control animals displayedlower levels of activity, while selected animals continuedto display high levels. In addition to the line type effects,both the distance of the photobeams from the floor of thecage and body mass were significant predictors of cageactivity, as measured by the photobeam breaks. Distancewas negatively related to photobeam counts, and bodymass was positively related.
We have developed a new animal model to study genetichyperactivity: lines of mice artificially selected for in-creased voluntary wheel-running behavior (Swallow et al.

We also found that control and selectedanimals responded differently to drugs that inhibit the do-pamine transporter protein. Cocaine and GBR 12909 re-duced wheel running in hyperactive animals, but thesesame drugs had no average effect in control-line animals.
The ability to partition total wheel revolutions into min-utes of revolutions and average speed enabled us to showthat the reduction in total wheel revolutions (by cocaineand GBR 12909) in selected lines was caused by a reduc-tion in the average speed of running, not the number ofminutes spent running. This result is particularly impor-tant because it shows that cocaine and GBR 12909 ame- Fig. 4 Individual responses (total revolutions 10–40 min post-

Also drawn are the regression lines (solid) to show the av-erage response predicted by baseline rates of activity. Cocaine and GBR 12909 tended to stimulate wheel running in individuals withlow baseline rates, but depressed activity in individuals with high The simplest neurochemical explanation of our results is baseline rates (intercept of the regression line was significantly that dopaminergic function is altered in the selection positive). In contrast, fluoxetine depressed wheel running irrespec-tive of baseline response (intercept of the regression line was not lines. We reached this conclusion because the DAT in- hibitors elicited a proportionately greater response in se-lected than control lines. However, a more complicatedinterpretation is also possible.

To avoid these unintended compli- cleus accumbens, leading to abnormally highphasic dopa- cations, we felt it was essential to restrict our initial in- mine responses (Grace 2001; ADHD has also been associ- ated with altered noradrenergic function, Solanto 1998,2001; Arnsten 2000, 2001).
