The effects of the administration [intraperitoneally, 15 and 75 mg/kg, except α-MePEA (amphetamine, AMPH) at 5 and 10 mg/kg] of β-phenylethylamine (PEA), its methylated (o-Me-, p-Me-, α-Me-, β-Me-, N-Me-, p-OMe-, N,N-di-Me-, and 3,4-diOH-N-Me-), para-halogenated (Br-, Cl-, F-, and I-), and other derivatives for example, p-OHPEA (p-tyramine), on Swiss male albino mice caged behavior fall into 3 broad categories. (1) N,N-diMe-, 3,4-diOH-N-Me-, and o-MePEA tend to reduce the behavioral activity, (2) p-OH and p-IPEA were without noticeable effects, and (3) the remaining compounds increased locomotor activity, produced hyperexcitability and fighting, jumping and vocalization, and convulsion in a graded manner (listed in increasing order p-OMe-, β-Me-, p-Cl-, p-Br-, p-F-, p-Me-, and N-MePEA, PEA itself and α-MePEA). The latter compound (amphetamine) being the most potent among them; equieffective but with lower potency were p-MePEA, N-MePEA, and PEA itself. The effects of PEAs upon group cage behavior were increased by pretreatment with pargyline (1.5 hours; 15 mg/kg) and decreased after reserpine or haloperidol [4 hours and/or 24 hours (2.5 and/or 2.5 mg/kg) and 1 hour (1 mg/kg), respectively], reaching full suppression with the double-dose regimen of reserpine and single dose of haloperidol. As expected, none of these substances by themselves were noticeable changed group mice activity or stereotypic behavior. The effects of test amines and catecholamine-modulating agents on stereotypy were assessed by rating the sequentially occurring behaviors: increased exploratory behavior with increased sniffing; occasional side-to-side head weaving; paw-licking and other grooming; gnawing, fighting and continuous side-to-side head weaving, and periodic episodes of “popcorn” behavior, during which all mice in the cage ran, jumped, and vocalized. In general, rank efficacy in eliciting stereotype aligned with rank efficacy in affecting group cage behavior. Our results show that a number of as yet little studied monomethylated and monohalogenated PEA analogs share a similar behavioral profile with PEA and AMPH. Behavioral changes observed appear to be, at least in part, mediated by catecholaminergic mechanism as they are modulated by drugs known to influence catecholamine activity. PEA analogs provide a large number of clinically useful drugs; whether further studies on these novel amines will lead to the rational design of newer, safer, and effective PEA-class drugs remains to be seen.
