Repeated amphetamine administration outside the home cage enhances drug-induced Fos expression in rat nucleus accumbens.

Abstract

Induction of the immediate early gene protein product Fos has been used extensively to assess neural activation in the striatum after repeated amphetamine administration to rats in their home cages. However, this technique has not been used to examine striatal activation after repeated administration outside the home cage, an environment where repeated drug… (More)
