Differential Pharmacological Profiles of Operant Acquisition, Operant Expression, and Decision-Making Performance As Tested By Antipsychotics and Other Dopaminergic Drugs
Operant acquisition, operant expression, and decision-making differentially rely on brain areas that are differentially affected by antipsychotic and other dopaminergic drugs. The purpose of this thesis was to test if the ...
Effect of Glycogen Synthase Kinase-3 Inhibition on the Acquisition and Expression of Cocaine-Cue Conditioned Activity and Spontaneous Locomotion in Rodents
Pairing environmental stimuli with pro-dopaminergic drugs can produce conditioned effects on locomotor behaviour in rodents, an effect that is used to model incentive learning and drug craving in laboratory animals. One ...
Role of Dopamine D2 Receptors in the Consolidation of Amphetamine-Cue Memory in Conditioned Activity in Rats
The neurotransmitter dopamine (DA) plays an essential role in reward-related incentive learning, whereby neutral stimuli gain the ability to elicit approach and other responses. In an incentive learning paradigm called ...
