The specific opioid receptor antagonist naloxone attenuates the behavioral and neurochemical effects of amphetamine. Furthermore, the amphetamine-induced increase in locomotor activity is attenuated by intracisternally administered naltrindole, a selective delta-opioid receptor antagonist, but not by the irreversible mu-opioid receptor antagonist beta… CONTINUE READING
