  • Mice devoid of CB1 cannabinoid receptors (CB1-/- mice) provide a unique opportunity to further investigate the role of CB1 receptors in exocannabinoid and endocannabinoid effects. CB1-/- mice (N = 18) and their wild-type littermates (CB1+/+ mice; N = 12) were placed in standard mouse operant chambers and trained to lever press under a fixed ratio 10 schedule of reinforcement. When stable lever press responding under the fixed ratio 10 schedule had been established, cannabinoids and… CONTINUE READING
