Trends in place preference conditioning with a cross-indexed bibliography; 1957-1991

Neurosci Biobehav Rev. Spring 1993;17(1):21-41. doi: 10.1016/s0149-7634(05)80228-3.


The purpose of this work is to present a perspective of the conditioned place preference (CPP) test by offering an overview of the empirical research from 1957-1991. The intent is not to extensively analyze the controversies inherent to any behavioral technique but rather to present a survey of research using a descriptive statistics approach to explore topical issues. The objectives of this work are three-fold: (a) to provide an exhaustive bibliography of the CPP literature including articles, journal abstracts, book chapters and critical reviews; (b) to provide a cross-index of identified key words/drugs tested; and (c) to give an overview of selected procedural issues underlying CPP testing.
