Summary of "Locomotor activity and discriminative stimulus effects of five novel synthetic cathinone analogs in mice and rats."

The development of novel synthetic psychoactive substances continues to accelerate. There are little or no data on the pharmacological mechanisms, behavioral effects, or abuse liability of many of the newer compounds, despite increasing reports of severe adverse effects in recreational users.

Dopamine and serotonin antagonists fail to alter the discriminative stimulus properties of ±methylenedioxymethamphetamine.

Most studies on discriminative stimulus effects of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) have been conducted using a relatively low dose (1.5 mg/kg), and those studies have invariably implicated ...

Cannabinoid-like Effects of Five Novel Carboxamide Synthetic Cannabinoids.

A new generation of novel cannabinoid compounds have been developed as marijuana substitutes to avoid drug control laws and cannabinoid blood tests. 5F-MDMB-PINACA (also known as 5F-ADB, 5F-ADB-PINACA...

Discriminative stimulus effects of mecamylamine and nicotine in rhesus monkeys: Central and peripheral mechanisms.

Mecamylamine is a non-competitive nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) antagonist that has been prescribed for hypertension and as an off-label smoking cessation aid. Here, we examined pharmacolog...

Contribution of monoaminergic mechanisms to the discriminative stimulus effects of 3,4-methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV) in Sprague-Dawley rats.

3,4-Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV) is a popular synthetic cathinone reported to have a high abuse potential. Recent preclinical research indicates the psychopharmacology of MDPV is comparable to co...

Effects of cocaine on the discriminative stimulus and reinforcing effects of mephedrone in male rats.

Abuse of cathinones has been a worldwide health concern for some time. Their chemical structures and wide variation in pharmacodynamic effects have led to clinical and preclinical effects that can be ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A synthetic steroid with anabolic properties that are more pronounced than its androgenic effects. It has little progestational activity. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1188)

The tendency to react to stimuli that are different from, but somewhat similar to, the stimulus used as a conditioned stimulus.

The directional growth of an organism in response to an external stimulus such as light, touch, or gravity. Growth towards the stimulus is a positive tropism; growth away from the stimulus is a negative tropism. (From Concise Dictionary of Biology, 1990)

A synthetic analog of the pituitary hormone, ARGININE VASOPRESSIN. Its action is mediated by the VASOPRESSIN receptor V2. It has prolonged antidiuretic activity, but little pressor effects. It also modulates levels of circulating FACTOR VIII and VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR.

Learning that takes place when a conditioned stimulus is paired with an unconditioned stimulus.
