Doses of eight phenylethylamines were substituted for cocaine on a drug-maintained behavior baseline in baboons. Intravenous infusions of drug were contingent upon completion of 160 lever presses (a 160-response fixed-ratio schedule; FR 160). A 3-h time-out period followed each infusion, permitting a maximum of 8 infusions per day. Fenfluramine was the only drug that did not maintain self-infusion performance at any dose tested. d-amphetamine was approximately 10 times more potent than… Expand
Self-injection of barbiturates and benzodiazepines in baboons
TLDR
The differences among the drug classes (i.e., barbiturate, benzodiazepine, phenothiazine) with respect to the maintenance of self-injection correspond well with the results of previous animal and human drug self-administration studies. Expand
Progressive-ratio performance maintained by drug infusions: Comparison of cocaine, diethylpropion, chlorphentermine, and fenfluramine
TLDR
Within-animal comparison of the maximum breaking points indicated that cocaine maintained the highest breaking points, followed in order by diethylpropion, chlorphentermine, and fenfluramine, which corresponds well with both the results of other animal experiments on measurement of reinforcing efficacy ofThese drugs and with the clinical information about the human subjective effects and abuse of these drugs. Expand
Phencyclidine-analogue self-injection by the baboon
TLDR
Analysis of the distribution of injections throughout the day indicate that lower doses were injected mainly during the daylight hours, but as the dose was increased the injections became more uniformly distributed, while the highest doses affected food intake, though the degree of suppression was modest. Expand
Self-administration in baboons and the discriminative stimulus effects in rats of bupropion, nomifensine, diclofensine and imipramine
The behavioral effects of the antidepressants nomifensine, diclofensine, bupropion, and imipramine were examined using a cocaine substitution drug self-administration procedure in baboons and aExpand
Selective Suppression of Cocaine- versus Food-Maintained Responding by Monoamine Releasers in Rhesus Monkeys: Benzylpiperazine, (+)Phenmetrazine, and 4-Benzylpiperidine
TLDR
Findings support the potential utility of dopamine-selective releasers as candidate treatments for cocaine dependence and examine the effects of the releasers benzylpiperazine, (+)phenmetrazine, and 4-benzylpipersidine, which have 20- to 48-fold selectivity in vitro for releasing dopamine versus serotonin. Expand
Amphetamine-type reinforcement by dopaminergic agonists in the rat
TLDR
Intravenous self-administration of d-amphetamine decreased in a dose-related fashion after injections of the dopaminergic agonists apomorphine and piribedil, adding to the evidence that actions in the dopamine synapse account for amphetamine's reinforcing properties. Expand
Self-injection of d,1-3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) in the baboon
TLDR
The highest dose of MDMA tested maintained a cyclic pattern of self-injection, i.e., days of high numbers of injections intermixed with days of low numbers of Shots, to an extent that food intake was decreased. Expand
Reinforcing effects of methylenedioxy amphetamine congeners in rhesus monkeys: are intravenous self-administration experiments relevant to MDMA neurotoxicity?
TLDR
Procedures in which MDMA and related compounds are self-administered can be established in rhesus monkeys, and these techniques can be used to engender contingent MDMA exposure without resorting to controversial methods of interspecies dose scaling. Expand
3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, "ecstasy") and its stereoisomers as reinforcers in rhesus monkeys: serotonergic involvement
TLDR
MDMA and its stereoisomers serve as reinforcers in rhesus monkeys and it is suggested that stimulation of 5-HT2A receptors is integral to the reinforcing effects of MDMA. Expand
Progressive ratio and fixed ratio schedules of cocaine-maintained responding in baboons
TLDR
PR and FR schedules provide similar information about the relative reinforcing efficacy of different cocaine doses as revealed by manipulation of time-out duration and analysis of sequential interresponse time distributions and cumulative response records. Expand

Comparison of progressive-ratio performance maintained by cocaine, methylphenidate and secobarbital
TLDR
Cocaine, methylphenidate and secobarbital were compared on a drug maintained progressive-ratio procedure in baboon subjects and within-subject comparison revealed that cocaine produced higher breaking points thanmethylphenidate at the same absolute dose. Expand
Self-administration of optical isomers of amphetamine and methylamphetamine by rats.

  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • The Journal of pharmacology and experimental therapeutics
  • 1973
TLDR
Qualitative effects were similar with both isomers of each drug: alternating periods of responding and no responding, weight loss, body irritation and typically death within two weeks with onset of self-administration. Expand
A comparison of chlorpromazine, imipramine, morphine and d-amphetamine self-administration in cocaine-dependent rhesus monkeys.
TLDR
Stable responding, at rates higher than saline-substitution responding, was well maintained during successive substitution sessions, and response rates during and after chlor Promazine substitution were markedly suppressed, indicating that chlorpromazine has aversive or punishing properties. Expand
Fenfluramine and N-ethyl amphetamine: Comparison of the reinforcing and rate-decreasing actions in the rhesus monkey
TLDR
The results substantiate and extend earlier findings with fenfluramine and indicate that its failure to act as a reinforcer is attributable to its meta-trifluoromethyl group. Expand
Addiction to secobarbital and chlordiazepoxide in the rhesus monkey by means of a self-infusion preference procedure
TLDR
Monkeys were exposed to a 24 h continuous experimental procedure which provided a periodic forced choice between the self-infusion of secobarbital versus saline, providing a flexible technique with several dependent measures for single or multiple drug addiction studies. Expand

TLDR
St striking parallels between drug-maintained responding and food-maintain responding occurred over a wide range of parameter values under both FR and second-order schedules. Expand
