The dopamine D3 receptor has been shown to mediate conditioned effects of psychostimulants such as cocaine. The present work was aimed at determining whether drugs acting at D3 receptors alter acquisition of conditioned effects of opiates. We have used the conditioned place preference (CPP) in mice, which permits the measurement of approach behaviour to… CONTINUE READING
