In particular, nicotineconditioned place preference was tested as a probe for the role of this receptor in reward circuitry. The hypersensitive transgenic animals showed place preference following nicotine injections of 10 µg/kg, while administration of 500 µg/kg was required to induce similar effects in the wild-type mice.
