Vulnerability to develop drug abuse could be related to differential sensitivity to some central effects of such drugs. Several results point to mesoaccumbens dopamine release elicited by psychostimulants as the rate-limiting factor of their reinforcing, hence addictive, effects and to locomotor stimulation as an indirect index of such a response. In this paper, we report parallel differences in sensitivity to amphetamine-induced locomotor stimulation and mesoaccumbens dopamine release in two… CONTINUE READING
