Monoamines modulate neuronal differentiation, and alteration of monoamine neurotransmission during development produces specific changes in neuronal structure, function, and pattern formation. We have previously observed that prenatal exposure to cocaine in a clinically relevant animal model produces increased length of pyramidal neuron dendrites in the… CONTINUE READING
