Neuroendocrine pharmacology represents a potentially valuable approach to the assessment of alterations in neuronal function in the brain of human cocaine abusers. Neuroendocrine effects of the monoamine uptake inhibitor cocaine have predominantly been examined in laboratory animals. These preclinical studies may help to identify the optimal challenge tests to be performed in clinical studies. In laboratory animals, acute administration of cocaine activates the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal… CONTINUE READING
