A second publication for Optopath in Neuropsychopharmacology

Cocaine seeking: The dual role of the prelimbic cortex in High frequency users. Coupling cocaine intravenous self-administration with optogenetic, Dr Deroche-Gamonet in collaboration with Dr Herry reveals that high frequency cocaine intake promotes a PL-dependent control of cocaine seeking, with the PL exerting a facilitatory effect on cocaine-induced resinstatement and an inhibitory effect on cocaine self-administration. Individual differences in cocaine-induced PL activation might be a source of vulnerability for poorly controlled cocaine-induced seeking and/or cocaine intake.
