NMDA receptor antagonists inhibit opiate antinociceptive tolerance and locomotor sensitization in rats


N-Methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors have an important role in different forms of behavioral and neural plasticity. Evidence suggests that these receptors may also be involved in plasticity arising from long-term treatment with different drugs of abuse, including tolerance, sensitization, and physical dependence. There is abundant evidence demonstrating… (More)
