A role for receptors of N-methyl-D-aspartic acid in the discriminative stimulus properties of phencyclidine.
Ketamine and (+)-N-allylnormetazocine ((+)-NANM) were found to generalize in a rat operant drug discrimination paradigm to the interoceptive stimulus induced by phencyclidine (PCP). Intraperitoneal administration of the non-competitive antagonist of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, MK-801, and intracerebroventricular injection of the competitive antagonist, 2-DL-amino-7-phosphonoheptanoic acid (2-APH), also resulted in a dose-dependent generalisation to the PCP discriminative stimulu...Expand abstract
