    Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, CB2 3EB, United Kingdom
    J Neurosci 26:12694-9. 2006
    ..These results demonstrate that drug withdrawal memories undergo protein synthesis-dependent reconsolidation in the BLA and suggest a common mechanism for the reconsolidation of both appetitive and aversive drug memories...

    Department of Psychology, Queen s University, Kingston, Ontario, K7L 3N6
    Can J Exp Psychol 56:241-52. 2002
    ..Results suggest that heroin abstinence has different effects on drug-seeking and drug-taking and that these effects do not temporally coincide with somatic measures of opioid withdrawal...
