Repeated amphetamine use produces an enduring sensitization of brain dopamine (DA) systems and behavior. Repeated exposure to stress can also produce sensitization, and amphetamine and stress may be interchangeable in this regard. There is, however, enormous individual variation in the susceptibility to sensitization by either stimulants or stress. The purpose of the present study was to determine if endogenous gonadal hormones contribute to individual variation in the sensitization of… CONTINUE READING
