6OHDA injected rats

6-hydroxydopamine (6OHDA): Unilateral destruction of dopaminergic neurons, induced by stereotaxic injection of  6OHDA  into the substantia nigra of rats, causes motor deficits after 3 days, with substantia nigra neuronal damage. 6OHDA injected into the medial forebrain bundle induces similar deficits.
