Enhanced cocaine concentrations in brain and blood observed after an intraperitoneal challenge dose in rats exposed to cocaine for 10 days by subcutaneous administration are traced to a change in the absorption process from the site of an intraperitoneal injection to general circulation. This conclusion is reached by three sets of corroborating results: (a)(More)
Chronic cocaine administration produces significant increases in cocaine-induced locomotor activity and stereotypy. In vivo microdialysis procedures were used to monitor extracellular dopamine (DA) and cocaine concentrations in the nucleus accumbens (N ACC) and cocaine concentrations in plasma of animals that received chronic or acute cocaine treatments.(More)
Microdialysis and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry were used to determine temporal cocaine concentration profiles in the rat striatum following intraperitoneal (i.p.) cocaine injection. For a 30 mg/kg i.p. dose, cocaine reached a maximum in vivo concentration of 10.1 microM within 30 min, and then rapidly declined. A non-linear fit of a kinetic model to(More)
Glucose mobilization and utilization in the periphery and central nervous system are important during exercise and are responsible for exercise efficacy. Magnesium (Mg) is involved in energy production and plays a role in exercise performance. This study aimed to explore the effects of Mg on the dynamic changes in glucose and lactate levels in the muscle,(More)
