A research project produced in collaboration between the University of North Georgia's (UNG) biology and psychological science departments was accepted in December by science journal Behavioural Brain Research.
The project was conducted by Drs. Ryan Shanks, Bryan Dawson and Steven Lloyd, as well as students Jordan Ross, Hillary Doyle, Amanda Helton, Brittany Picou, Jordyn Schulz, Chris Tavares and Sarah Bryant.
The team examined the effects of adolescent exposure in mice to cocaine, amphetamines and methylphenidates and how the exposure may later make the mice more sensitive to methamphetamines.
The paper was published in volume 281 of Behavioural Brain Research.
