Acute morphine pretreatment sensitizes rats to the response rate-decreasing effects of opioid antagonists naloxone and naltrexone. The effect appears to be mu-opioid receptor specific, as pretreatment with non-mu-selective opioid agonists results in less pronounced sensitization. In the present study, food-deprived rats were trained to respond for food(More)
The present experiment was designed to examine whether the acute sensitization to naltrexone that is induced by a single dose of morphine could be blocked by pretreatment with naloxone. Food-deprived male Sprague-Dawley rats were trained to respond for food on a multiple-trial fixed interval 3-min schedule. Reinforcement was contingent upon a response(More)
