Decreased prefrontal cortex dopamine activity following adolescent social defeat in male rats: role of dopamine D2 receptors


Adverse social experience in adolescence causes reduced medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) dopamine (DA) and associated behavioral deficits in early adulthood. This study aims to determine whether mPFC DA hypofunction following social stress is specific to adolescent experience and if this results from stress-induced DA D2 receptor activation. Male rats… (More)
