Nitrous oxide (N(2)O), a pharmacological active gas and an antagonist of N-methyl-D-aspartic acid receptors, has been reported to be effective in the treatment of alcohol and tobacco withdrawal syndrome. However, the neurobiological bases of N(2)O effects are unknown. The aim of the present studies was to examine the effect of N(2)O on acquisition and expression of morphine- (10 mg/kg; s.c.) and cocaine- (20 mg/kg; i.p.) induced conditioned place preference (CPP) in mice. Unbiased place… Expand
Effects of nitrous oxide on dopamine release in the rat nucleus accumbens and expectation of reward
TLDR
The capacity of N2O to block the expression of morphine-induced CPP in mice and in rats was shown and an increase of DA extracellular level in the Nac when animals were placed in the morphine-paired compartment and these increase was blocked by N2 O. Expand
The effects of xenon and nitrous oxide gases on alcohol relapse.
TLDR
Exposure to Xe during the last 24 hours of abstinence produced a trend toward reduced ethanol intake during the first alcohol re-exposure days, and Xe gas exposure significantly decreased the cue-induced reinstatement of alcohol-seeking behavior. Expand
Blocking α4β2 and α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors inhibits the reinstatement of morphine-induced CPP by drug priming in mice
TLDR
The data suggest that specific nAChR subtypes, i.e., α(4)β(2) and α(7), may contribute to the reinstatement of morphine-induced CPP by drug priming in mice. Expand
Ketamine blocks morphine-induced conditioned place preference and anxiety-like behaviors in mice
TLDR
The results suggest that the ketamine-induced block of morphine CPP may not be attributed solely to alleviating negative affective states, but potentially through impaired memory of morphine-context associations. Expand
Asymmetric Involvement of Central and the Peripheral NMDA Glutamate Receptors in the Expression of Withdrawal Syndrome in Morphine-Dependent Mice
TLDR
The role of N- methyl-D aspartic acid (NMDA) glutamate receptor on naloxone-induced withdrawal syndrome in morphine-conditioned mice is investigated and injection of memantine significantly attenuated n aloxone precipitated jumping count, jumping height and fecal material output in morphine dependent mice. Expand
Ketamine Blocks Morphine-Induced Conditioned Place Preference and Anxiety-Like Behaviors in Mice
TLDR
The results suggest that the ketamine-induced block of morphine CPP may not be attributed solely to alleviating negative affective states, but potentially through impaired memory of morphine-context associations. Expand
Conditioned Place Preference as a Preclinical Model for Screening Pharmacotherapies for Drug Abuse
Conditioned place preference (CPP) is established by pairing a context conditioned stimulus with an abused drug. With repeated context-drug pairings, the context alone acquires positive incentiveExpand
The neurobehavioral effects of the designer drug naphyrone – an experimental investigation with pharmacokinetics and concentration/effect relationship in mice
TLDR
The neurobehavioral effects after binge differs from those after single administration and are not explained by drug accumulation given the relatively fast elimination. Expand
Drug-Induced Conditioned Place Preference and Its Practical Use in Substance Use Disorder Research
TLDR
The case is supported to support the case that the CPP method is specifically advantageous for studying the role of a form of Pavlovian learning that associates drug use with the surrounding environment. Expand

Conditioned place aversion and self-administration of nitrous oxide in rats
TLDR
The rewarding/aversive effects of nitrous oxide (N(2)O) were evaluated using the place conditioning paradigm and two novel methods of inhalant self-administration were evaluated, one that used a forced-choice alternating gas environment and one that use a free-choice paradigm. Expand
Anxiolytic-like action in mice treated with nitrous oxide and oral triazolam or diazepam.
TLDR
This behavioral animal model indicates that the optimal combinations for reduction of anxiety-like behavior with minimal effects on sedation are 0.1 mg/kg oral TRIAZ with 25% N2O or 2.0 mg/ kg oral DIAZ, therefore, provides better dose control. Expand
Nitrous oxide or halothane, or both, fail to suppress c-fos expression in rat spinal cord dorsal horn neurones after subcutaneous formalin.
TLDR
It is suggested that measuring the genetic product of c-fos proto-oncogene is a useful adjunct to pharmacological tests whenever behavioural hyperalgesia is questionable or unobtainable and supports the previous hypothesis that inhalation anaesthesia lacks pre-emptive analgesic action. Expand
Nitrous oxide generalizes to a discriminative stimulus produced by ethylketocyclazocine but not morphine.
Abstract The discriminative stimulus properties of nitrous oxide, an analgesic and anesthetic gas, were evaluated in rats trained to discriminate the effects of morphine or ethylketocyclazocine.Expand
Nitrous Oxide and Xenon Prevent Amphetamine-Induced Carrier-Mediated Dopamine Release in a Memantine-Like Fashion and Protect Against Behavioral Sensitization
TLDR
Data regarding the effect of memantine, nitrous oxide, and xenon support the hypothesis that activation of certain NMDA receptors in the NAcc is involved in the amphetamine-induced increase in carrier-mediated dopamine release and the development of behavioral sensitization to amphetamine. Expand
Effects of naloxene on the subjective and psychomotor effects of nitrous oxide in humans
TLDR
Naloxone, in doses of 10 mg or less, does not appear to affect the subjective and psychomotor effects of nitrous oxide. Expand
Clonidine potentiates the neuropathic pain-relieving action of MK-801 while preventing its neurotoxic and hyperactivity side effects
TLDR
Clonidine is found to be a potentiation of a sufficient magnitude that it permits cutting the MK-801 dose requirement in half, thereby achieving prolonged neuropathic pain relief while doubling the margin of safety against any type of side effect that might be mediated by blockade of NMDA receptors.

Persistent Disruption of an Established Morphine Conditioned Place Preference
TLDR
It was found that an established morphine conditioned place preference (mCPP) was persistently disrupted if protein synthesis was blocked by either anisomycin or cycloheximide after the representation of a conditioning session. Expand
Effects of d-amphetamine and scopolamine on activity before and after shock in three mouse strains
TLDR
Activity was greater both prior to and following exposure to shock among C57BL/6J mice than in DBA/2J mice, which in turn was greater than that of A/J mouse, and d-amphetamine increased activity in all three strains. Expand
Effects of Gaseous Anesthetics Nitrous Oxide and Xenon on Ligand-gated Ion Channels: Comparison with Isoflurane and Ethanol
TLDR
The results suggest that NMDA receptors and nACh receptors composed of &bgr;2 subunits are likely targets for nitrous oxide and xenon, which are distinct from that of isoflurane or ethanol. Expand
