Drug addiction represents a pathological usurpation of neural processes involved in learning and memory. Retrieval of drug-related memories can result in drug craving and relapse. Recently, the insula was identified as part of the neuronal circuit responsible for the processing of drug memory; however, its precise role remains unclear. To investigate the involvement of insular muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChRs) in the processing of drug memory. The morphine-induced conditioned place… CONTINUE READING
