UW-Green Bay Assistant Prof. Todd Hillhouse published a chapter in a book on the methodological approaches for assessing the brain reward system in animals. Hillhouse’s chapter covers the conditioned place preference (CPP) procedure which is used for assessing the rewarding effects of drugs. This is demonstrated when a novel environment becomes associated with a drug’s effects, to the extent that an organism, when given the choice, will prefer to be in that environment. The chapter serves as a primer for using this procedure for the study of drugs that produce rewarding or aversive effects.
