Hamsters repeatedly exposed to cocaine throughout adolescence display highly escalated offensive aggression compared to saline-treated littermates. Recently, we have shown that serotonin neural signaling and development play an important role in adolescent cocaine-induced offensive aggression. This study examined whether the adolescent cocaine-induced aggressive response was modulated by serotonin type 1A (5HT1A) receptors. To test this, adolescent male Syrian hamsters were administered cocaine… CONTINUE READING
