Inhibition of Monoamine Oxidases Desensitizes 5-HT1A Autoreceptors and Allows Nicotine to Induce a Neurochemical and Behavioral Sensitization
TLDR
Data indicate that a repeated treatment with a mixture of nicotine and tranylcypromine induces both behavioral sensitization and sensitization of noradrenergic and serotonergic neurons, and MAOIs contained in tobacco desensitize 5-HT1A autoreceptors to trigger the strong addictive properties of tobacco.
Chronic treatment with monoamine oxidase-B inhibitors decreases cocaine reward in mice
TLDR
It is suggested that long-term treatments with MAO-B inhibitors may decrease cocaine-supported operant responses in cocaine-naïve mice by selectively decreasing frontal cortical metabolism of dopamine and serotonin.
Irreversible blockade of monoamine oxidases reveals the critical role of 5‐HT transmission in locomotor response induced by nicotine in mice
TLDR
The data suggest that mixed irreversible MAOIs contained in tobacco facilitate the effects of Nicotine on serotonin release, thus allowing the locomotor and rewarding effects of nicotine.
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors Allow Locomotor and Rewarding Responses to Nicotine
TLDR
The data suggest that MAOIs contained in tobacco and tobacco smoke act in synergy with nicotine to enhance its rewarding effects.
Serotonergic mechanism underlying tranylcypromine enhancement of nicotine self‐administration
TLDR
It is suggested that MAO inhibition enhances serotonergic transmission, which serves a critical role in the reinforcing effects of nicotine.
Nicotine produces chronic behavioral sensitization with changes in accumbal neurotransmission and increased sensitivity to re‐exposure
TLDR
It is found that nicotine produces persistent neural adaptations that make the system sensitive and receptive to future nicotine re‐exposure 7 months after the initial behavioral sensitization.

Psychostimulant-Induced Behavioral Sensitization Depends on Nicotinic Receptor Activation
TLDR
Data indicate that nicotinic receptor activation (by endogenously released acetylcholine) is a common denominator initiating neuroplasticity involved in the development of amphetamine, as well as cocaine-induced sensitization.

TLDR
The findings suggest that cocaine sensitization is relatively persistent, but not necessarily permanent, and support the hypothesis that expression of behavioral sensitization to cocaine involves actions within the NAc, particularly those mediated by dopamine D1 receptors.
Once weekly administration of nicotine produces long-lasting locomotor sensitization in rats via a nicotinic receptor-mediated mechanism
TLDR
Nicotinic receptor activation following once-weekly nicotine administration produces long-lasting behavioral sensitization, suggesting that even infrequent nicotine exposure initiates neuroadaptive processes associated with nicotine addiction.

Importance of the Noradrenaline–Dopamine Coupling in the Locomotor Activating Effects of d-Amphetamine
TLDR
Results suggest that locomotor activating effects of d-amphetamine are caused by the stimulation of cortical α1-adrenergic receptors by noradrenaline, which increases the release of a functional part of subcortical DA.
