Alterations in receptor expression and distribution between cell surface and cytoplasm are means by which psychostimulants regulate neurotransmission. Metabotropic glutamate receptor group I, subtype 5 (mGluR5) and GABA(B) receptors (GABA(B) R) are critically involved in the development and expression of stimulant-induced behaviors, including conditioned place preference (CPP), an index of drug-seeking. However, it is not known if psychostimulant-induced CPP alters the trafficking of these… CONTINUE READING
