In this study, pregnant Wistar dams were exposed to 220 ppm of lead (Pb) in drinking water during gestation and lactation. The response to the locomotor-stimulating effects of 0.5 mg/kg of amphetamine (AMPH) was evaluated in 35-day-old male offspring. The results demonstrated that developmental Pb exposure induced no differences in the response to the drug,(More)

Weighted logistic regression models were used(More)
A substantial majority of homeless youth and young adults (HYA) experience abuse prior to and during homelessness. HYA also have high rates of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and suicidal behavior. This study investigated relationships between traumatic experiences, PTSD symptoms, substance use, and the protective effects of emotion regulation on(More)
