In the present study, the effects of bilateral intra-hippocampal CA1 (intra-CA1) injections of GABA(A) receptor agonist and/or antagonist on the acquisition and expression of morphine-induced place preference in male Wistar rats have been investigated. The conditioning treatments with subcutaneous (s.c.) injections of different doses of morphine (0.5-7.5(More)
In the present study, the effects of intraperitoneal, intra-accumbal and intra-ventral tegmental area administration of L-arginine and N(G)-nitro-L-arginine methyl-ester (L-NAME) on conditioned place preference behavior were studied. Intraperitoneal (i.p.; 0.5, 1 and 5 mg/kg) and intra-accumbal (intra-NAc; 0.3, 1 and 3 microg/rat), but not intra-ventral(More)
In the present study, the effects of intra-nucleus accumbens injection of L-arginine, a nitric oxide (NO) precursor, and N(G)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME), a nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitor, on morphine-induced conditioned place preference in male Wistar rats were investigated. Our data showed that subcutaneous (s.c.) injection of morphine(More)
In the present study, the effects of bilateral injections of cholinergic agents into the hippocampal CA1 region on morphine-induced conditioned place preference (CPP) were investigated in male Wistar rats. Subcutaneous (s.c.) administration of different doses of morphine sulphate (0.5-6 mg/kg) produced a dose-dependent CPP. Using a 3-day schedule of(More)
The effect of alpha-adrenoceptor agents on the impairment induced by histamine was measured for memory retention of passive avoidance learning in rats. Post-training intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) injection was carried out in all the experiments. Histamine (5, 10 and 20 microg/rat) reduced, while a histamine H(1) receptor antagonist, chlorpheniramine(More)
In the present study, the effects of intra-central amygdala (CeA) injection of dopamine D1 receptor agonist and antagonist on morphine-induced conditioned place preference (CPP) were investigated in male Wistar rats. Our data showed that subcutaneous (s.c.) injection of morphine sulphate (0.5-10 mg/kg) significantly increased the time spent in the(More)
In the present study, the effects of intra-dorsal hippocampus (intra-CA1) injection of cannabinoid receptor agents on memory formation have been investigated in 3-days apomorphine-treated rats. Step-through inhibitory avoidance task of memory has been used to examine retrieval of memory formation, 24h after training. Apomorphine was injected subcutaneously(More)
The effects of dopaminergic drugs on morphine state-dependent memory of passive avoidance task were examined in mice. Pre-training administration of morphine (5mg/kg) led to state-dependent learning with impaired memory retrieval on the test day which was reversed by pre-test administration of the same dose of the opiate. The pre-test(More)
Chronic pain has been reported to induce apoptosis. Both chronic excitation of neural pathways involved in pain transmission and control and the stress of pain may be potentially involved in apoptosis induced by pain. Here, we have investigated their possible role in pain-induced apoptosis. Inflammatory pain was induced by injection of formalin in intact(More)
In the present study, the effects of intraperitoneal injections of GABA(A) receptor agonist and antagonist on memory formation and morphine state-dependent learning were investigated in rats. Pre-training administration of morphine (1-15 mg/kg) in a step-down passive avoidance task induced state-dependent learning with impaired memory retrieval on the test(More)
