The purpose of the present study was to examine the effects of the 5-HT3 antagonists ondansetron and MDL72222, and the 5-HT releaser and reuptake inhibitor dexfenfluramine, on intravenous heroin self-administration by Wistar rats. Using separate squads of animals, two separate schedules of heroin reinforcement were used; a relatively low dose (0.03 mg/kg(More)
The present series of experiments sought to investigate further the mechanism by which dexfenfluramine, a selective 5-HT releaser/reuptake inhibitor, reduces heroin self-administration by male Wistar rats. In experiment 1, the effect of combined intravenous heroin and intraperitoneal dexfenfluramine injections on operant responding for food was examined. In(More)
Previous studies have indicated that γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-induced electrophysiological responses can be enhanced by noradrenaline (NE) acting via β-adrenergic receptors. Methamphetamine (MA) has been reported to be a noradrenergic releasing agent. In the present study, we examined the interaction of MA and GABA in cerebellar Purkinje neurons of(More)
