Eur J Pharmacol. 2007;562:92-102 pubmed..We conclude that muscarinic and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in the ventral tegmental area may critically mediate the rewarding effects of morphine. ..

Neuroscience. 2016;327:1-9 pubmed publisher..Taken together, it can be concluded that the impairing effect of TAM on memory formation may be modulated by nAChRs of the CA1 regions. It seems that memory impairment may be considered as an important side effect of TAM...
- Mohammadmirzaei N, Rezayof A, Ghasemzadeh Z. Activation of cannabinoid CB1 receptors in the ventral hippocampus improved stress-induced amnesia in rat. Brain Res. 2016;1646:219-226 pubmed publisher..Taken together, it can be concluded that exposure to post-training inescapable stress impaired memory consolidation. The impairing effects of stress on memory retrieval may be mediated by the VH cannabinoid CB1 receptors...
- Rostami M, Rezayof A, Alijanpour S, Sharifi K. Hippocampal nicotinic receptors have a modulatory role for ethanol and MDMA interaction in memory retrieval. Brain Res. 2017;1669:11-17 pubmed publisher..Thus, it can be concluded that there may be functional interactions among ethanol, MDMA and nicotine via the dorsal hippocampal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor mechanism in memory retrieval and drug state-dependent learning. ..

Prog Neuropsychopharmacol Biol Psychiatry. 2017;: pubmed publisher..Confirmed by the cubic interpolation planes, the dose-response data revealed a cross-state-dependent learning between morphine and nicotine which may be mediated by the CeA endocannabinoid system via CB1 receptors...
