Subordinate male laboratory rats maintained in mixed-sex groups in a Visible Burrow System habitat show a complex pattern of stress-related changes including enhanced defensive behavior, early mortality and increased voluntary ethanol consumption. Analysis of serotonin (5-HT) and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) levels indicated that 5-HT levels do not(More)
The use of cocaine during pregnancy produces a variety of adverse effects in offspring. Gestational cocaine exposure is known to affect developing dopamine systems, but other neurochemical systems may also be at risk. Regional density of opiate receptors labeled with [3H]naloxone was examined in the brains of 21-day-old male rats exposed to cocaine (0, 10,(More)
2-[14C]deoxyglucose autoradiography was used to determine local cerebral glucose utilization (lCGU) in rats following chronic cocaine treatment and subsequent abstinence. lCGU was examined in 43 discrete brain regions in animals which had received daily injections of cocaine for 14 days (10 mg/kg) followed by 3 days of saline or bromocriptine (10 mg/kg)(More)
The effects of D,L-2-amino-7-phosphonoheptanoic acid (AP7), a competitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist, and MK-801, a non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonist, on regional brain metabolism were studied in unanesthetized, freely moving rats by using the quantitative [14C]2-deoxyglucose autoradiographic procedure. AP7 (338 or 901 mg/kg)(More)
