Effect of drugs of abuse on social behaviour: a review of animal models
The aim of the present work was to provide an up-to-date review of studies on the changes in social behaviour induced by drugs of abuse, and to improve the understanding of the social dimension of drug addiction.
Mechanistic insights into the efficacy of memantine in treating certain drug addictions
Characterization of a Dopamine Transporter and Its Splice Variant Reveals Novel Features of Dopaminergic Regulation in the Honey Bee
The findings suggest that multiple cellular mechanisms, including gene splicing and epigenomic communication systems, may be adopted to increase the potential of a conserved gene to contribute to lineage-specific behavioral outcomes.
Pharmacodynamics of Memantine: An Update
Since 1999, considerable additional preclinical evidence has accumulated supporting the use of memantine in AD (both symptomatic and neuroprotective), and there has been further confirmation of the MOA of Memantine as an uncompetitive NMDA receptor antagonist and essentially no data contradicting the understanding of the benign side effect profile of memantes.
Efectos conductuales y neuroquímicos del consumo de éxtasis y cocaína en ratones adolescentes.
La 3,4-metilendioximetanfetamina (MDMA), una sustancia popularmente conocida como extasis, es una droga ilicita consumida habitualmente por adolescentes y adultos jovenes. Ademas, el policonsumo es


Chronic cocaine enhances defensive behaviour in the laboratory mouse: involvement of D2 dopamine receptors
The results suggest the involvement of D2 receptors in cocaine-induced hyperdefensiveness, and the hypothesis that alteration in D2 receptor functioning produced by chronic cocaine administration may produce hyper defensiveness possibly due to altered perceptive processes is discussed.
Cocaine-induced locomotor activity and cocaine discrimination in dopamine D4 receptor mutant mice
The present results on the stimulation of activity and interoceptive/subjective effects of cocaine are consistent with the previously reported disregulation of dopamine synthesis in DA D4R KO mice, and further suggest a role of the DA D 4R in vulnerability to stimulant abuse.
Role of dopamine D1 receptors in cocaine lethality
The mGluR5 antagonist MPEP reduces the conditioned rewarding effects of cocaine but not other drugs of abuse
MPEP pretreatment dose‐dependently reduced the development of CPP for cocaine only and when tested alone at the doses effective in reducing CPP, MPEP produced neither a place preference nor aversion.
