Although drug abuse is increasing among youths, it is unclear whether recreational drugs affect the development of nerve growth. Thus, the present study examined the effect of recreational drugs, such as MDMA, 3,4-methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA) and diphenylprolinol, a novel recreational drug with a similar chemical… CONTINUE READING
