In order to characterize behavioral function of opioid systems in neonatal rats, two series of experiments were initiated. In one, the reinforcing properties of exogenous opioids were investigated in 5-day-old pups. Specifically, the infant's ability to associate the novel taste of saccharin, received while suckling, with ip morphine injections was assessed. Rats that received 0.5 ml of saccharin prior to morphine administration ingested considerably more saccharin on Day 10 than did control… CONTINUE READING
