Abstract: Nicotine and amphetamines are the most widely abused stimulants. The main aim of the studies in this thesis was to investigate how these two drugs of abuse affect distinct regions of the rat brain involved in development of habitual and compulsive behavior, namely subregions of striatum in the rat. To this end, using a battery of tests including behavior, brain slice electrophysiology, and molecular biology, we have evaluated acute effects by nicotine and amphetamine, as well as progressive chan... more
