Sex differences in extrastriatal dopamine d(2)-like receptors in the human brain.

OBJECTIVE The study examined gender differences in extrastriatal dopamine D2-like receptor levels in the human brain in vivo. METHOD [(11)C]FLB 457, a high-affinity radioligand for extrastriatal D(2)-like receptors, and a three-dimensional positron emission tomography system were used to measure D(2)-like receptor binding potentials in frontal cortex… CONTINUE READING
