A biphasic effect of morphine on locomotion has been extensively described. Nevertheless, the effects of this opioid on other behavioral parameters have been overlooked. The aim of the present study was to verify the effects of different doses of morphine on motor behaviors observed in an open-field. Adult female mice were injected with saline or morphine(More)
The effects of cocaine on memory are controversial. Furthermore, the psychostimulant action of cocaine can be a critical issue in the interpretation of its effects on learning/memory models. The effects of a single administration of cocaine on memory were investigated during the presence of its motor stimulating effect or just after its termination. The(More)
The effect of home cage conspecifics' behavior on locomotor sensitization to amphetamine (AMP) or ethanol (ETOH) were investigated. Female mice were repeatedly treated with saline or AMP (2.0 mg/kg for 13 days--Experiment 1) or saline or ETOH (1.8 g/kg for 21 days--Experiment 2) in home cages where all the animals had the same treatment (homogeneous home(More)
