Amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS) refer to a group of drugs whose principal members include amphetamine, methamphetamine and 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA). Worldwide, ATS are among the most common illicit drugs. Therefore, understanding whether and to what extent ATS exposure affects brain structure and functioning in recreational users has become a critical public health issue. We studied gray and white matter densities in 20 experienced users of ATS (more than 100 units MDMA and/or… CONTINUE READING
