Effects of methamphetamine administration on brain neurotensin-like immunoreactivity in rats.

The effects of methamphetamine (MAP) administration on neurotensin-like immunoreactivity (NTLI) were investigated in the rat brain. A single administration of MAP induced dose-dependent and reversible increases in NTLI in the caudate-putamen, limbic forebrain and midbrain. NTLI in the caudate-putamen, limbic forebrain and midbrain was also enhanced after… (More)
