Chronic restraint stress during withdrawal increases vulnerability to drug priming-induced cocaine seeking.
By Kevin Ball on 01/28/2019
Assay Type: In Vivo
Species: Rat

We tested the effect of chronic restraint stress on cocaine seeking in rats using both extinction- and abstinence-based animal relapse models. Rats were trained to press a lever for I.V. cocaine infusions (0.50 mg/kg/infusion) paired with a discrete tone+light cue in daily 3-h sessions. A main finding was that a history of chronic restraint stress was associated with increased cocaine priming-induced drug seeking.
