- Not all stress is equal: CREB is not necessary for restraint stress reinstatement of cocaine-conditioned rewardLisa A Briand
Department of Pharmacology, The University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, United States Electronic address
Behav Brain Res 246:63-8. 2013..Our findings suggest that not all stressors engage the same circuits or molecular mechanisms to elicit reinstatement behavior...
- Enhanced extinction of cocaine seeking in brain-derived neurotrophic factor Val66Met knock-in miceLisa A Briand
Department of Pharmacology, Perelman School of Medicine, The University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA
Eur J Neurosci 35:932-9. 2012..These results suggest that the molecular mechanisms underlying aversive and appetitive extinction are distinct from one another and BDNF may play opposing roles in the two phenomena...
