Research with animals and humans suggests that impulsivity is both a determinant and a consequence of drug abuse. In the present study, rats screened for high (HiI) or low (LoI) impulsivity using a delay-discounting task were compared on a Go/No-go procedure for intravenous cocaine (0.4 mg/kg) or saccharin pellets (0.1%). An additional aim was to examine the effects of previous cocaine exposure on impulsive choice. Thus, following Go/No-go testing, HiI and LoI rats were reevaluated on delay… Expand
Sex-specific attenuation of impulsive action by progesterone in a go/no-go task for cocaine in rats
TLDR
Treatment with PRO resulted in a sex-specific reduction in impulsive action for cocaine, while not affecting cocaine self-administration. Expand
Self-administered cocaine causes long-lasting increases in impulsive choice in a delay discounting task.
TLDR
It is suggested that self-administered cocaine can cause lasting elevations in impulsive choice, and that the high levels of impulsive choices observed in human cocaine users may be due in part to long-term effects of cocaine on brain function. Expand
Impulsive Rats Exhibit Blunted Dopamine Release Dynamics during a Delay Discounting Task Independent of Cocaine History
TLDR
Two distinct mechanisms by which rapid DA signaling may influence impulsivity are demonstrated, and the importance of NAc core DA release dynamics in impulsive behavior is illustrated. Expand
Acute nicotine increases both impulsive choice and behavioural disinhibition in rats
TLDR
Findings support the hypothesis that heightened impulsivity in smokers may in part be a consequence of the direct acute effects of nicotine, and drug-induced changes in impulsivity may play a critical role in the transition to and maintenance of nicotine dependence. Expand
Effects of chronic administration of drugs of abuse on impulsive choice (delay discounting) in animal models.
TLDR
The effects of chronic cocaine administration, which have been most thoroughly characterized, are described in terms of drug-induced neural alterations in ventral striatal and prefrontal cortical brain systems, and some implications for pharmacological treatment ofdrug-induced increases in impulsive choice are discussed.

Inhibitory behavioral control: A stochastic dynamic causal modeling study comparing cocaine dependent subjects and controls
Cocaine dependence is associated with increased impulsivity in humans. Both cocaine dependence and impulsive behavior are under the regulatory control of cortico-striatal networks. One behavioralExpand
Neural substrates of amphetamine induced impulsive behaviour
Impulsivity is a pathological feature of drug addiction. Amphetamine is a highly addictive drug that is amongst the most harmful recreational drugs abused within the UK (Nutt, King, & Phillips,Expand
Trait differences in response to chronic nicotine and nicotine withdrawal in rats
TLDR
The results indicate that only LI individuals are vulnerable to chronic drug- and withdrawal-induced impairments in self-control which may increase the likelihood of the transition to, and maintenance of, nicotine dependence. Expand
Deficits in a Simple Visual Go/No-go Discrimination Task in Two Mouse Models of Huntington’s Disease
TLDR
Early and robust deficits are revealed in two mouse models of HD, the zQ175 KI mouse and the R6/2 mouse, carrying ~240 CAG repeats, suggesting this assay may measure deficits in underlying attentional and/or behavioral inhibition processes. Expand

Impulsivity on a Go/No-go task for intravenous cocaine or food in male and female rats selectively bred for high and low saccharin intake
TLDR
The results indicate that HiS rats and females are more prone than LoS Rats and males to impulsive drug-seeking behavior. Expand
Impulsivity (delay discounting) for food and cocaine in male and female rats selectively bred for high and low saccharin intake
TLDR
A mean adjusted delay (MAD) was calculated over 30 choice trials during each daily 3-hour session, and it was used as a quantitative measure of impulsivity, finding that in groups maintained by food, HiS rats were more impulsive (lower MADs) than LoS rats, and LoS females were moreImpulsive thanLoS males.

Impulsivity (delay discounting) as a predictor of acquisition of IV cocaine self-administration in female rats
TLDR
Performance on the delay discounting model of impulsivity predicted vulnerability to subsequent acquisition of cocaine self-administration. Expand
Impulsivity predicts the escalation of cocaine self-administration in rats
TLDR
It is suggested that individual differences in impulsivity predict escalation of cocaine self-administration in female rats, which may have implications in the prediction of binge-like patterns of cocaine intake in women. Expand
Cocaine disrupts both behavioural inhibition and conditional discrimination in rats
TLDR
Administration of moderate to high doses of cocaine increases behavioural disinhibition, and this increase may be independent of an impairment in conditional discrimination. Expand
Impulsive choice as a predictor of acquisition of IV cocaine self- administration and reinstatement of cocaine-seeking behavior in male and female rats.
TLDR
Individual differences in impulsive choice were associated with differences in cocaine-seeking behavior in rats selected for high or low impulsivity. Expand
Cocaine exposure causes long-term increases in impulsive choice.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cocaine exposure can cause enduring increases in impulsive choice behavior, consistent with observations in human subjects with drug addictions. Expand
Previous Cocaine Exposure Makes Rats Hypersensitive to Both Delay and Reward Magnitude
TLDR
It is concluded that previous exposure to cocaine makes choice behavior hypersensitive to differences in the time to and size of available rewards, consistent with a general effect of cocaine exposure on reward valuation mechanisms. Expand
Effects of d-amphetamine and ethanol on a measure of behavioral inhibition in humans.
TLDR
The results suggest that AMP and EtOH have specific and distinctive effects on the ability to inhibit responses, which are thought to reflect a certain form of impulsivity. Expand
Effects of methamphetamine on the adjusting amount procedure, a model of impulsive behavior in rats
TLDR
In these experiments, the rats became less impulsive after acute non-disruptive doses of pre-session METH, whereas they became moreImpulsive after receiving repeated post-session injections of a dose that was behaviorally disruptive when administered acutely. Expand
