Effects of dopamine antagonists on drug cue-induced reinstatement of nicotine-seeking behavior in rats.

Abstract

Dopaminergic neurotransmission has been implicated in associative learning processes related to drugs of abuse. However, it is not clear whether blockade of activation of dopamine receptors alters conditioned incentive properties of nicotine-associated cues. Using a response-reinstatement procedure, this study examined the effects of antagonists selective… (More)
