Behavioural Neuroscience Poster
Dr. Liebmann: Great poster. Hope you are having fun at the meeting. "Data from animal experiments reveal some effects of nicotine to be mediated through endogenous opioids, suggesting a common neurophysiological pathway of nicotine- and heroin dependence." Opiate receptors are involved in at least a hundred different regulatory pathways in the body. It is not clear if you are suggesting that there are data in the literature which show that in animals smoking and/or nicotine potentiate heroine addiction. Perhaps, another way to look at these data is purely from a sociological view-point rather than a metabolic one. Any comments?
