Previous work has demonstrated that intake of palatable foods can alter the behavioral actions of opioid drugs. To investigate whether intake of palatable fare only affects opioid-induced behaviors or more generally influences drug-induced responses, this study examined the effects of chronic intake of a palatable sucrose solution on nicotine-induced antinociception. Eight male and eight female Long-Evans rats were provided with ground chow and water (control group), while eight males and eight… CONTINUE READING
