Aceperone is a neuroleptic drug of the butyrophenone class. It is an α-noradrenergic blocking drug developed by Janssen Pharmaceutica in the 1960s.[1]

Because of its learning impairment effects in animals, aceperone has been used as a tool in the study of the biochemical basis of learning.[2][3][4]
