Methylphenidate Conditioned Place Preference: Role of D1 Receptors and Brain-derived Neurotrophic Factor
Methylphenidate (trade name: Ritalin) produced a more robust conditioned place male as compared to female juvenile rats. This effect was blocked by a D1 antagonist (SCH 23390), which resulted in a conditioned place aversion in male as compared to female rats. Effects on Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) will be reported.
