There has been considerable interest in the role of dopamine D(3) receptors in appetitive conditioning but few studies have examined their role in aversive conditioning. The present study examined the effect of the dopamine D(3) receptor-preferring partial agonist BP 897 (1-(4-(2-naphthoyl-amino)butyl)-4-(2-methoxyhenyl)-1A-piperazine hydrochloride) and the(More)
The nucleus accumbens (NAc) plays a central role in dopamine-produced reward-related learning. In previous studies, the cyclic adenosine monophosphate-dependent protein kinase (PKA) inhibitor Rp-Cyclic 3′,5′-hydrogen phosphorothioate adenosine triethylammonium salt (Rp-cAMPS) blocked the acquisition but not expression of NAc reward-related learning for(More)
