- 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, 125 S 31st Street, Philadelphia, PA, United States
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...

- Cocaine-related behaviors in mice with deficient gliotransmissionJill R Turner
Department of Pharmacology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA
Psychopharmacology (Berl) 226:167-76. 2013..However, while astrocytes are capable of releasing chemical transmitters that can modulate neuronal function, the role of these gliotransmitters in mediating behaviors associated with drugs of abuse has been largely unexplored...
- Increased hippocampal neurogenesis and accelerated response to antidepressants in mice with specific deletion of CREB in the hippocampus: role of cAMP response-element modulator τBrigitta B Gundersen
Departments of Pharmacology and Genetics, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA, USA
J Neurosci 33:13673-85. 2013..The current results suggest that activation of CREMτ may provide a means to accelerate the therapeutic efficacy of current antidepressant treatment. ..
