Exposure to acute restraint stress reinstates nicotine-induced place preference in rats

Tobacco addiction is associated with high rates of relapse to drug use even after prolonged periods of abstinence. Relapse can occur upon reexposure to the drug of abuse, exposure to stress or to stimuli associated with ...
Effects of chronic stress on nicotine-induced locomotor activity and corticosterone release in adult and adolescent rats
(Addiction Biology, 2008-03-01) [Artigo]
We examined nicotine-induced locomotion and increase in corticosterone plasma levels in adolescent and adult animals exposed to chronic restraint stress. Adolescent [postnatal day (P) 28-37] and adult (P60-67) rats were ...
Amphetamine- and nicotine-induced cross-sensitization in adolescent rats persists until adulthood
(Addiction Biology, 2009-07-01) [Artigo]
Nicotine and psychostimulants are often abused in combination and drug abuse often begins during adolescence and can have long-term consequences. Behavioral sensitization has been suggested as an animal model of neuroplasticity ...
Differential behavioral and neuroendocrine effects of repeated nicotine in adolescent and adult rats
(Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior, 2005-03-01) [Artigo]
Despite the high prevalence of tobacco abuse among adolescents, the neurobiology of nicotine addiction has been studied mainly in adult animals. Repeated administration of this drug to adult rats induces behavioral ...
