Project 1 - Effects of Flavors on Nicotine Choice and Central Reward Mechanisms
Tobacco manufacturers have recently started selling novel tobacco lozenges and other products that resemble candy and minty breath fresheners especially attractive to young consumers. In our proposed studies we will use rodent models to examine whether the minty and sweet candy flavors in these products mask the unpleasant taste of tobacco and promote nicotine addiction.
