To compare the physiological response to a cocaine-exercise challenge in cocaine-conditioned animals with that of acute-cocaine animals, rats were injected i.p. with either cocaine (20 mg.kg-1) or saline, twice daily for 14 consecutive days. On the 15th day (test day) cocaine-conditioned rats received an i.v. injection of cocaine (5 mg.kg-1) (chronic group). One-half of the chronic saline rats also received the cocaine injection (acute group), while the other half received saline (saline group… CONTINUE READING
