The medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) is a key neural region involved in opiate-related reward memory processing. AMPA receptor transmission in the mPFC modulates opiate-related reward memory processing, and chronic opiate exposure is associated with alterations in intra-mPFC AMPA receptor function. The objectives of this study were to examine how(More)
N-Methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) are involved in opiate reward processing and modulate sub-cortical dopamine (DA) activity. NMDA receptor blockade in the prelimbic (PLC) division of the mPFC strongly potentiates the rewarding behavioural properties of normally sub-reward threshold doses of opiates. However, the(More)
