Abstract

1. 1. The effects of chronic (14 day) administration of nicotine (1.5 mg/kg/day) on the striatal and mesolimbic dopaminergic receptor binding sites were determined. 2. 2. Chronic administration of nicotine preferentially increased the number of dopaminergic receptor binding sites in the striatal, but not the mesolimbic area of rat brain.
