RationaleConditioned place preference (CPP) procedures provide one measure of potential rewarding effects of abused drugs. Many attempts to induce CPP with nicotine have been unsuccessful.ObjectivesTo assess the influence of nicotine dose and stimulus assignment procedure on development of nicotine-induced CPP.MethodsInitial preferences for one side of a two-compartment apparatus were first determined in Sprague–Dawley rats. In subsequent conditioning trials, the compartment paired with… Expand
Intravenous nicotine conditions a place preference in rats using an unbiased design
TLDR
Intravenous nicotine (0.03 mg/kg) has rewarding effects in an unbiased design suggesting that the place conditioning protocol used in the present study might be an especially useful model for studying the processes underlying the conditioned rewarding effects of nicotine. Expand
Nicotine place preference in a biased conditioned place preference design
TLDR
A negative correlation was found between time spent in the white chamber before conditioning and preference shift following conditioning, suggesting that animals showing greater initial aversion to a non-preferred context are more likely to form CPP. Expand
The effect of previous exposure to nicotine on nicotine place preference
TLDR
The results suggested that response to a single exposure to nicotine predicts the acquisition of nicotine preference in a 14-day conditioning protocol only for LNR rats, and demonstrated the relevance of using LNR and HNR classification when the individual susceptibility to nicotine preference is studied.

Nicotine-induced conditioned place preference in rats: Sex differences and the role of mGluR5 receptors
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the conditioning effect of nicotine is more important in males than in females, and mGluR5 antagonism may be therapeutically useful in smoking cessation during the maintenance of smoking behavior when conditioning plays an important role, notwithstanding the fact that this effect is observed only in male rats, not in females.

Nicotine Facilitation of Conditioned Place Preference to Food Reward in Humans
TLDR
While nicotine seems to facilitate CPP expression for a virtual environment previously paired with chocolate food rewards, further characterization of the mechanism by which this occurs is needed. Expand
Single trial nicotine conditioned place preference in pre-adolescent male and female rats
TLDR
The data suggest that young females are more sensitive to nicotine reward than males supporting a heightened sensitivity of the mesolimbic dopamine system in very young females. Expand
Conditioned Place Preference and Self-Administration Induced by Nicotine in Adolescent and Adult Rats
TLDR
It is demonstrated that nicotine produces reliable CPP [0.2 mg/kg dose (s.c.)] in adolescents and 0.6 mg/ kg dose in adults, and SA[0.03 mg/ kilograms/infusion] in adolescent rats, which indicate that adolescent rats are more sensitive to the rewarding and reinforcing effects of nicotine. Expand
Nicotine place preference in the mouse: influences of prior handling, dose and strain and attenuation by nicotinic receptor antagonists
TLDR
Nicotine CPPs were seen in handled/environmentally habituated, but not in unhandled, ICR mice, indicating that this model can elucidate underlying mediators of nicotine reward and earlier handling experience and strain are important factors when evaluating a nicotine CPP in the mouse. Expand
Enhanced vulnerability to the rewarding effects of nicotine during the adolescent period of development
TLDR
Pre-exposure to nicotine during adolescence diminished the aversive effects produced by the highest nicotine dose in naive adults, and these studies provide a basis for enhanced vulnerability to Nicotine during adolescence. Expand
Immediate and long-term behavioral effects of a single nicotine injection in adolescent and adult rats.
We examined the acute rewarding as well as the long-term psychomotor altering effects of nicotine in early adolescent and adult male Sprague-Dawley rats. Place conditioning was used to examineExpand

Nicotine-induced place preferences following prior nicotine exposure in rats
TLDR
The results suggest that motivational properties of nicotine can be detected in counterbalanced CPP procedures, but only in subjects with a history of nicotine exposure. Expand
Pharmacologic characterization of nicotine-induced conditioned place preference
TLDR
The data suggest that nicotine and its rewarding effects as measured by CPP are primarily mediated by central rather than peripheral events. Expand
Apparent absence of nicotine-induced conditioned place preference in rats
TLDR
The conditioned place preference paradigm was used in order to assess the reinforcing actions of nicotine in rats, and the present results suggest that it is not a robust phenomenon. Expand
Nicotine place preference using the biased method of conditioning
TLDR
Whether nicotine would produce a conditioned place preference in rats confined for thirty min to their less-preferred side in a three compartment apparatus, or an aversion when another group of rats were confined to their more preferred side, is determined. Expand
Further studies on nicotine-induced conditioned place preference in the rat
Rats received subcutaneous (SC) injections of either nicotine (NIC, 0.001 to 2.0 mg/kg) or saline (SAL, 1 ml/kg) immediately prior to conditioning sessions in a conditioned place preference (CPP)Expand
Aversion instead of preference learning indicated by nicotine place conditioning in rats
TLDR
The results suggest that previous observations of preference effects may have been due to specific procedural factors or may have depended on negative reinforcement due to stress reduction. Expand
Nicotine-induced conditioned place preference in adolescent and adult rats
TLDR
An increased predisposition to stimulatory nicotine effects during adolescence may contribute to age-specific rewarding properties of the drug as revealed using the CPP paradigm in this experiment. Expand
Conditioned aversion after delay place conditioning with nicotine
TLDR
The data suggest that delay conditioning with NIC produces place aversion by a central mechanism and that the time of administration of the unconditioned stimulus is a strong determinant of the place-conditioning effects of NIC. Expand
Environmental stimuli promote the acquisition of nicotine self-administration in rats
TLDR
A powerful interaction between environmental stimuli and nicotine in the acquisition of operant responding is illustrated and indicates that both intrinsically reinforcing and previously neutral cues can participate in this effect. Expand

TLDR
A series of 4 experiments examined the suggestion that drug-induced place preference conditioning may be due to interference with habituation and found rats preferred chambers that were paired with amphetamine, apomorphine, morphine, and morphine more than chamber that were novel; however, they also consistently preferred novel chambers to familiar saline-paired chambers.
