Analysis of Opioid-Seeking Reinstatement in the Rat
The inability to maintain drug abstinence is often referred to as relapse and consists of a process by which an abstaining individual slips back into old behavioral patterns and substance use. Animal models of relapse have been developed and validated over the last decades, and significantly contributed to shed light on the neurobiological mechanisms underlying vulnerability to relapse. The most common procedure to study drug-seeking and relapse-like behavior in animals is the “reinstatement model.” Originally elaborated by Pavlov and Skinner, the concepts of reinforced operant responding and conditioned behavi...

Role of Opioid Receptors in the Reinstatement of Opioid-Seeking Behavior: An Overview
Opioid abuse in humans is characterized by discontinuous periods of drug use and abstinence. With time, the probability of falling into renewed drug consumption becomes particularly high and constitutes a considerable problem in the management of heroin addicts. The major problem in the treatment of opioid dependence still remains the occurrence of relapse, to which stressful life events, renewed use of heroin, and exposure to drug-associated environmental cues are all positively correlated. To study the neurobiology of relapse, many research groups currently use the reinstatement animal model, which greatly contributed to...

Computational Structural Biology of Opioid Receptors
The publication of high-resolution structures for all of the opioid receptor subfamilies has unveiled exciting opportunities for mechanistic insight into the molecular mechanisms underlying the biology of nociception, reward, and higher cognitive functions, as well as promises for progress in several clinical areas such as pain management, physiological dependence, addiction, and mood disorders. To turn this promise into novel and improved therapeutic entities, however, this information needs to be supplemented with research strategies that explore the dynamic behavior of the proteins and their interactions with other rece...
