Methamphetamine-induced behavioural effects and brain concentrations of methamphetamine and its metabolite amphetamine in mice.

(+)-Methamphetamine (MA) produced dose-related behavioural changes in mice. There was a correlation between the type of behavioural response and the peak brain MA concentration after the i.p. administration of each of the following doses of (+)-MA: 0.64 mg/kg (decreased quiescence--0.738 microgram/g MA), 2.5 mg/kg (increased locomotor activity--3.148… CONTINUE READING
