Abstract

The dopaminergic D3 receptor (D3R) is emerging as an antagonist of sensitized behavior induced by addictive drugs such as cocaine. New work by Wang and coworkers in this issue of Neuron now identifies CaMKII as an important negative regulator of the D3R. CaMKII relieves the D3R-mediated inhibition on sensitized behavior to foster drug-seeking behavior.
