Chronic cocaine exposure produces unconditioned enhancement in impulsive decision making; however, little is known about the effects of cocaine-paired conditioned stimuli on this behavior. Thus, this study explored the effects of cocaine-paired contextual stimuli on impulsive decision making and the contribution of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs)(More)
The reconsolidation of cocaine memories following retrieval is necessary for the sustained ability of a cocaine-paired environmental context to elicit cocaine seeking. Extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) is an intracellular signaling molecule involved in nucleus accumbens core (NACc)-mediated reconsolidation of Pavlovian cocaine memories. Here, we(More)
Contextual stimulus control over instrumental drug-seeking behavior relies on the reconsolidation of context-response-drug associative memories into long-term memory storage following retrieval-induced destabilization. According to previous studies, the basolateral amygdala (BLA) and dorsal hippocampus (DH) regulate cocaine-related memory reconsolidation;(More)
Glutamatergic neurotransmission in the dorsal hippocampus (DH) is necessary for drug context-induced reinstatement of cocaine-seeking behavior in an animal model of drug relapse. Furthermore, in vitro studies suggest that the Src family of tyrosine kinases critically regulates glutamatergic cellular functions within the DH. Thus, Src-family kinases in the(More)
