Repetitive use of psychoactive drugs produces a variety of learned behaviors. These can be classified in the laboratory according to an operant/classical paradigm, but in vivo the two types of learning overlap. The classically conditioned responses produced by drugs are complex and bi-directional. There has been progress in classifying and predicting the types of conditioned responses, but little is known of mechanisms. New techniques for understanding brain function such as micro-dialysis… Expand
Conditioned and sensitized responses to stimulant drugs in humans

TLDR
A two-factor hypothesis of the role of DA in drug abuse is proposed, suggesting that in individuals with a long history of substance abuse, drug-induced DA release is decreased, diminishing the ability of individuals to sustain goal-directed behavior and long-term objectives. Expand
Conditioning of Addiction
Drugs of abuse are initially ingested for their euphorigenic properties. However, by means of classical conditioning, repeated drug-taking behavior results in significant association of theseExpand
Extinction of Conditioned Responses to Methamphetamine-Associated Stimuli in Healthy Humans
TLDR
Conditioned responses after two pairings with MA extinguish quickly, and are influenced by both subjective drug effects and the extinction interval, as well as the inter-session intervals during the extinction phase. Expand
Discriminative stimuli are sufficient for incubation of cocaine craving
TLDR
This work trained rats to self-administer cocaine under DS control, then investigated DS-controlled incubation of craving, in the absence of drug-paired CSs, which held promise for drug relapse treatments. Expand
Neurobiology of the incubation of drug craving
TLDR
Recent results that have identified important brain regions involved in the incubation of drug craving in rodents are discussed, as well as evidence for the underlying cellular mechanisms. Expand
Incubation of discriminative stimulus-controlled cocaine craving: An animal model relevant to relapse prevention
TLDR
Animal models of incubation in response to discriminative stimuli (DSs) that signal drug availability before relapse, not yet examined in preclinical studies, could be more relevant to relapse prevention. Expand
A motivational learning hypothesis of the role of mesolimbic dopamine in compulsive drug use
The effects of drugs and substances of abuse on central dopamine (DA) transmission studied by in vivo monitoring techniques have been examined and compared with those of conventional reinforcers andExpand
A motivational learning hypothesis of the role of mesolimbic dopamine in compulsive drug use.
TLDR
Repetitive, non-adaptive release of DA in the NAc 'shell' by drugs of abuse would result in abnormal strengthening of stimulus-reward and stimulus-response associations that constitute the basis for craving and compulsive drug use. Expand
A simple and reliable method for the positive identification of pavlovian conditioned cocaine effects in open-field behavior
  • R. Carey, J. Gui
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Journal of Neuroscience Methods
  • 1997
TLDR
In a series of experiments, it is demonstrated that location of the animal within the open-field permits a positive identification of cocaine conditioning independent from habituation factors. Expand
The Role of PKMzeta in Drug Reward Memory
Drug addiction is a chronic brain disease with a high incidence of relapse. Environmental cues that previously and repeatedly associated with drugs of abuse easily evoke relapse to addicts even afterExpand

A learning model of addiction.
TLDR
Clinical studies have been instituted to determine whether modification of conditioned responses can influence clinical outcome, and a recently completed study in cocaine addicts has produced evidence that outcome can be improved by a passive extinction technique over an 8 week outpatient treatment program. Expand
Integrating systemic cue exposure with standard treatment in recovering drug dependent patients.
TLDR
Preliminary data are presented from a novel treatment approach which is designed to test whether drug-conditioned responses can be reduced or extinguished by systematic exposure to drug-related cues and whether such extinction improves the overall results of treatment. Expand

TLDR
Conditioned withdrawal and craving are pervasive among both methadone maintained patients and drug-free patients even after 30 days of inpatient Therapeutic Community rehabilitation, and can be effectively extinguished in an intensive, three-week, inpatient procedure. Expand

TLDR
To prevent relapse, both conditioned CCCs (conditioned abstinence, CA) and conditioned SAPD should be actively extinguished after DTX by elicitation of CA and programmed SAPD under conditions preventing pharmacological reinforcement. Expand
Conditioning of successive adaptive responses to the initial effects of drugs
  • A. Wikler

  • Conditional reflex
  • 1973
TLDR
It is hypothesized that as in conditioning of physiological reflexes, a CS repeatedly paired with administration of a neurotropic drug eventually comes to activate central processing events that are evoked by the stimulus properties of the drug, and hence the CRs change in consequence of compensatory (sometimes“overshooting”) biochemical alterations proximal to the receptor site of action of theDrug.

The role of predrug signals in morphine analgesic tolerance: support for a Pavlovian conditioning model of tolerance.
TLDR
The results suggest that prior demonstrations that the display of morphine tolerance is specific to the drug administration environment may be readily interpreted by a conditioning analysis of tolerance. Expand

It is proposed that the direct analgesic effect of morphine becomes attenuated over the course of successive administrations of the narcotic by a conditioned, compensatory, hyperalgesic responseExpand
Abstinent opiate abusers exhibit conditioned craving, conditioned withdrawal and reductions in both through extinction.
TLDR
The described extinction procedures were effective in virtually eliminating conditioned craving and conditioned withdrawal signs/symptoms to drug-related stimuli within 20 hour-long treatment sessions (a 3-week inpatient stay). Expand
