    Hao Chen
    Department of Pharmacology, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, TN 38163, USA
    Neuropsychopharmacology 36:2629-38. 2011
    ..These findings implicate adolescent social interactions in promoting smoking behavior by surmounting the aversive property of nicotine...
  3. pmc Nicotine self-administration differentially modulates glutamate and GABA transmission in hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus to enhance the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal response to stress
    Guoliang Yu
    Department of Pharmacology, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, TN 38163, USA
    J Neurochem 113:919-29. 2010
    ..This mechanism, which does not preserve homeostatic plasticity, supports the concept that smoking functions as a chronic stressor that sensitizes the HPA to stress...

    Fan Wang
    Department of Pharmacology, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tennesse, USA
    J Neurochem 106:943-56. 2008
