PVN infusion of GLP-1-(7-36) amide suppresses feeding but does not induce aversion or alter locomotion in rats.
Intracerebroventricular infusion of glucagon-like peptide-1-(7-36) amide (GLP-1) reduces feeding in rats, an effect that could be localized to the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN).Expand

Norepinephrine and the control of food intake.
The focus of the present review is to reconsider the role of endogenous norepinephrine (NE) in brain, specifically within the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN), with regard to its potentialExpand

Meal patterns in male rats during and after intermittent nicotine administration
Continuous administration of nicotine (NIC) reduces food intake (FI) and body weight (BW), whereas rebound eating and BW gain occur after NIC cessation. However, generalizations derived from priorExpand

Caffeine exposure sensitizes rats to the reinforcing effects of cocaine.
The present study examined the effect of pre-exposure to a moderate dose of caffeine (20 mg kg-1) on the acquisition of self-administration of cocaine (0.125 mg kg-1/infusion or 0.25 mgExpand

Different affective response to opioid withdrawal in adolescent and adult mice.
AIMS Drug withdrawal is suggested to play a role in precipitating mood disorders in individuals with familial predisposition. Age-related differences in affective responses to withdrawal mightExpand

Self-administered cocaine causes long-lasting increases in impulsive choice in a delay discounting task.
Cocaine use is associated with high levels of impulsive choice (preference for immediate over delayed rewards), but it is not clear whether cocaine use causes elevated impulsive choice, or whetherExpand

Meal patterns in female rats during and after intermittent nicotine administration
Previously we observed in male rats that intermittent administration of nicotine (NIC) during the dark phase reduces food intake (FI) by initially decreasing only dark phase meal size. This wasExpand

Decreased Intake of a Liquid Diet in Nonfood-Deprived Rats Following Intra-PVN Injections of GLP-1 (7–36) Amide
I.c.v. administration of glucagon-like peptide-1 (7-36) amide (GLP-1) dose dependently suppresses food intake in rats, and induces activation of c-fos within rat paraventricular hypothalamus (PVN).Expand

Meal patterns and body weight after nicotine in male rats as a function of chow or high-fat diet
Studies of the effects of nicotine (NIC) on meal patterns in rats often employ chow pellet diets that contain little fat, whereas humans using NIC commonly consume diets relatively rich in fat. TheExpand

Pharmacologic antagonism of ghrelin receptors attenuates development of nicotine induced locomotor sensitization in rats
AIMS Ghrelin (GHR) is an orexigenic gut peptide that interacts with ghrelin receptors (GHR-Rs) to modulate brain reinforcement circuits. Systemic GHR infusions augment cocaine stimulated locomotionExpand
