The diazepam binding inhibitor (DBI) modulating the functions of the GABAA receptors is involved in the maladaptation of neural system during using opiate, but its role in opiate dependence is not fully understood. Using conditioned place preference (CPP) rat model and in situ hybridization technique, we examined the correlation between opiate dependence(More)
