Rhesus monkeys were used to investigate whether ABS-201 induces similar hypothermia effect in large animals as seen in rodents and how this drug influences the hypothalamus centered limbic functional network. Functional connectivity (FC) between anterior hypothalamus and limbic system was examined by using resting state fMRI (rsfMRI). It is found that ABS-201 caused significant hypothermia effects in monkeys and significantly decreased hypothalamic FC with limbic regions as well. The findings suggest ABS-201 may have profound effects on the neurobehavior of subjects mediated by the hypothermia and antipsychotic effect.
