A rat model of novelty-seeking phenotype predicts vulnerability to nicotine relapse where locomotor reactivity to novelty is used to rank high (HR) versus low (LR) responders. Present study investigates implication of cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1R) in the basolateral (BLA) and the central (CeA) nuclei of amygdala in behaviorally sensitizing effects of nicotine and accompanying social anxiety following juvenile nicotine training and a 1- or 3-wk injection-free period in the novelty-seeking… CONTINUE READING
