Brain nicotinic acetylcholine receptors are involved in stress-induced potentiation of nicotine reward in rats
TLDR
It seems that there is a different contribution of the basolateral amygdala, the medial prefrontal cortex or the CA1 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in stress-induced potentiation of nicotine-induced conditioned place preference.
NMDA receptors in the basolateral amygdala mediate acquisition and extinction of an amphetamine conditioned place preference.
TLDR
The present findings indicate that NMDA receptor activity in the BLA is critical for acquisition and extinction of an amphetamine CPP and may be relevant to understanding the neural mechanisms underlying some aspects of drug seeking and addiction.
Dose-Dependent Induction Of CPP Or CPA By Intra-pVTA Ethanol: Role Of Mu Opioid Receptors And Effects On NMDA Receptors
TLDR
It is demonstrated, for the first time, that ethanol induces conditioned place preference or aversion when administered locally into the ventral tegmental area (VTA) and the associated role of MORs and the critical contribution of local MORs in the acquisition of CPP was revealed by a selective antagonist.
Acquisition and reinstatement of ethanol-induced conditioned place preference in rats: Effects of the cholinesterase inhibitors donepezil and rivastigmine
TLDR
The results show that the cholinergic system is involved in the reinforcing properties of ethanol, and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors play an important role in the relapse to ethanol-seeking behaviour.
Acquisition, expression, and reinstatement of ethanol-induced conditioned place preference in mice: effects of exposure to stress and modulation by mecamylamine
TLDR
It is concluded that mecamylamine blocks the acquisition, expression and reinstatement of conditioned reinforcing effects of ethanol without per se reinforcing or aversive influence, which might be a potential advantage in the treatment of alcoholism.

TLDR
It is concluded that dorsal hippocampal dopamine receptors may play an active role in morphine reward and reduce the expression of morphineinduced place preference.
