WU, Xu-Jun; ZONG, Wei; SUN, Yong-Mei; HU, Xin-Tian; MA, Yuan-Ye & WANG, Jian-Hong


We showed that rhesus monkeys ( Macaca mulatta check for this species in other resources ) can develop a morphine dependence. Rhesus monkeys successfully established a conditioned place preference (CPP) induced by morphine treatment and this preference lasted for at least (36.3±1.3) months. This animal model may be useful for research into addiction in humans.
