Both the electrode and access to another Intracranial Self-Stimulation 25 brain device, such as an intracerebral cannula, need to be ­provided on the same small skull surface. 4. Brain Sites and Systems That Support Rewarding Intracranial Self-Stimulation The brain pathways activated by ICSS are hypothesized to be the same pathways that are activated by natural rewards and by drugs of abuse that exert a powerful influence on pathways involved in incentive-motivation (1–4). Olds (58) and subsequent workers in the field (59–61) hypothesized that the posterior MFB region of the lateral hypothalamus was a major component of the brain reward system.

Nicotine is one of the main psychoactive ­ingredients in tobacco smoke that contributes to addiction to tobacco smoking (176).  3), an effect that is dose-dependent (114, 178, 181, 186, 187). The time-, dose-, and procedure-dependency of the effects of nicotine were demonstrated in studies by Clarke and Kumar (177) and Schaefer and Michael (178). , movements between photobeams) in rats permitted to turn on and off electrical stimulation by running along opposite walls of a shuttle box (177). However, this effect was only observed in the first few minutes after the nicotine injection.

Although all of these structures were initially hypothesized to be part of the brain reward system and to be activated by ICSS to produce rewarding effects, extensive studies demonstrated that reward is not a unitary process, but rather a complex process 26 Vlachou and Markou composed of various and sometimes different psychological ­processes and underlying brain mechanisms (82–84). 5. 1. Psychomotor Stimulant Drugs Psychomotor stimulants, such as amphetamine, cocaine, and methamphetamine, are monoamine reuptake inhibitors or releasers, which exert their effects by activating mainly the dopaminergic, noradrenergic, serotonergic, and glutamatergic neurotransmitter systems of the brain (85–89).
