Both humans and experimental animals demonstrate gender differences in response to cocaine. However, the mechanisms underlying these differences remain unclear. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether ovarian steroid hormones play a role in the locomotor response to cocaine in rats. Initial assessments of locomotor activity measured using photobeam monitors verified the robust gender difference in response to cocaine in our experimental paradigm. Subsequently, cocaine (5.0, 7… CONTINUE READING
