Involvement of Arginine Vasopressin and V1b Receptor in Heroin Withdrawal and Heroin Seeking Precipitated by Stress and by Heroin

Abstract

A previous study has shown that the stress responsive neurohormone arginine vasopressin (AVP) is activated in the amygdala during early withdrawal from cocaine. The present studies were undertaken to determine whether (1) AVP mRNA levels in the amygdala or hypothalamus, as well as hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) activity, would be altered during… (More)
