In a choice situation, rats given repeated access to novel objects in one of two distinct environments display an increase in preference for the novelty-paired environment. The experiments in this present report extend the generality of this effect to new procedures. Further, this shift in preference depends on object novelty; no systematic shift in(More)

In the present experiments, the dopamine D1 receptor antagonist SCH-23390 blocked an increase in place preference conditioned by access to novel objects at doses that did not interfere with object interaction (0.01 and 0.03 mg/kg) or produce a place aversion in(More)
