Rational and objectivesNeuropeptide Y (NPY), an orexigenic peptide that is released during periods of food restriction, has been shown to have a significant modulatory impact on drug-related behaviors. We have previously reported that both acute food deprivation (FD) and NPY injections can reinstate extinguished drug-seeking behavior, a proposed animal model of relapse to drug abuse. However, it is not clear whether the FD effect on drug seeking is dependent on NPY transmission. Here, we used… CONTINUE READING
