The investigators used a conditioned place preference (CPP) paradigm to conduct an initial examination of the role of genetic background in the rewarding effects of nicotine. In the nicotine CPP procedure, some strains develop a preference for a chamber that is consistently paired with nicotine, which suggests that an association is made between the rewarding properties of nicotine and contextual stimuli. CPP training occurred in two phases with the first phase starting the day after the preconditioning session and consisted of three conditioning sessions (days 2-4). The first testing day was on day 5. The second phase of CPP training started on day 6 where mice underwent conditioning sessions on days 6-9. The second testing day was on day 10.

Procedures conducted:
• conditioned place preference test  Nicotine preference and learning effect. Nicotine-treated vs. control. 2 trials (day 5, day 10).
