In the present study, the effects of transient inhibition of the shell and core parts of the nucleus accumbens by lidocaine on the expression and acquisition of morphine-induced conditioned place preference in male Wistar rats were investigated. In addition, the number of bouts of sniffing, rearing, and compartment crossing was scored. Lidocaine(More)
The influence of intra-ventral tegmental area administration of gamma-amino-butyric-acid-B (GABAB) receptor agonist and antagonist on the expression and acquisition of morphine-induced conditioned place preference (CPP) in morphine-sensitized female rats was examined. Our pilot experiment showed that subcutaneous administration of morphine-(2.5, 5 and 7.5(More)
Previous studies have reported that morphine exerts its effects in part through the release of nitric oxide (NO). In the present study, the effects of acute and chronic administration of the NO precursor, L-arginine and NO synthase (NOS) inhibitor, L-nitro-amino-methyl-ester (L-NAME) on morphine self-administration in rats were investigated. The animals(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown that pretreatment with normobaric hyperoxia has cardioprotective effect in isolated rat heart. The present study was designed to test the hypothesis that pretreatment normobaric hyperoxia could induce delayed cardioprotection effect in an in vivo regional heart ischemia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Experiment 1: Rats were(More)
The effects of saffron ethanolic extract and its constituent, safranal, on the acquisition and expression of morphine-induced place preference (CPP) in male Swiss Webster mice (20-25 g) were investigated in the present study. An unbiased place conditioning method was applied for assessment of morphine reward properties. The saffron extract and safranal were(More)
The anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive properties of Rosmarinus officinalis L. (ROL) extract and its major constituent, carnosol in male NMRI mice (W:25-30 g) have been evaluated in the present study. Formalin (2%, 20 microL) was injected into the plantar portion of the hind paw and resulting pain and inflammation was studied for 60 min. The plant(More)
Introduction: It has been reported that traumas such as transverse abdominal incision before myocardial ischemia result in a significantly decreased infarct size. This phenomenon is named remote preconditioning of trauma. Since small skin burn is one of most common traumas, the effect of this injury on ischemia-induced arrhythmias and infarct size was(More)
