Cocaine administration has been shown to alter glutamate transmission in numerous studies. Using quantitative electron microscopic immunogold labeling, our laboratory has previously reported that nerve terminal glutamate immunoreactivity is transiently altered following cocaine administration. The present study was undertaken to examine presynaptic nerve terminal glutamate immunoreactivity at shorter time points after withdrawal from cocaine. Animals received saline or cocaine for 7 days… CONTINUE READING
