1. The mechanism of stimulation of noradrenaline (NA) release by nicotine (NIC) was investigated in human cerebral cortex slices preloaded with 3H-noradrenaline. 2 NIC (10-1000 micro M) increased 3H-NA release in a concentration-dependent manner. 3. NIC (100 micro M)-evoked 3H-NA release was largely dependent on external Ca2+, and was attenuated by(More)
Orphanin FQ/nociceptin (NOC) has been reported to regulate dopaminergic neurotransmission in rewarding pathway, and to suppress the development of conditioned place preference (CPP) induced by certain addictive drugs. In this study, we investigated the effect of NOC on CPP induced by repeated administration of methamphetamine (MAP) in rats. Repeated(More)
