    M5 Muscarinic Receptor Gene Deletion Accelerates Extinction, But Inhibits Reinstatement of Morphine-Conditioned Reward in Mice

    Mesolimbic dopamine neurons in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) play important roles in mediating the rewarding effects of opiates in addicted rats and in drug relapse. M5 muscarinic receptors (M5R) are needed for prolonged dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens induced by morphine. However, little is known about the role…

    A Review on Liposomes and Polymeric Nanoparticles as Drug Delivery Vehicles to the Brain

    Brain is vulnerable to oxidative injury due to its high metabolic activity. Neurodegeneration poses ultimate threat to the neuronal survival via oxidative damage. Delivering drugs to the brain is the most challenging task as the Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB) does not allow the passage of drug molecules from the circulation to…
