Abstract:

Morphine-dependent rats that underwent naloxone-precipitated withdrawal in the presence of both gustatory and audiovisual stimuli subsequently avoided the taste cue, but not the audiovisual one. All environmental stimuli do not associate equally with withdrawal in the rat. The role of stimulus factors should be investigated in other forms of narcotic-related conditioning.
