Abstract
We examined the effect of the sigma (1) receptor agonist, 1-(3,4-dimethoxyp henethyl)-4-(phenylpropyl)piperazine (SA4503), on the acquisition of the co nditioned place preference response to subcutaneously administered (-)-nico tine in rats. (-)-Nicotine, but not SA4503 or vehicle, produced a significa nt conditioned place preference response. Pretreatment of animals with eith er 1 or 3 mg/kg of SA4503 significantly attenuated the conditioned place pr eference response to)-nicotine. (C) 2001 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
