Cellular mechanisms of Delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol behavioural sensitization.

We investigated the cellular events linked to the induction of cannabinoid behavioural sensitization. In sensitized rats, autoradiographic binding studies with [3H]CP-55,940 showed a significant increase in cannabinoid receptor binding, specifically in the cerebellum, with no changes in the other brain areas where basal CB1-receptor expression is observed… CONTINUE READING
