1 Review
This volume brings together basic and clincial investigators for the purpose of deepening our understanding of drugs of abuse and treatment of drug addiction. Methamphetamine, MDMA, PMA, and various solvents are the most widely abused drugs in the world; and their use has dramatically increased over the last two decades. These drugs of abuse are known to be neurotoxic in several species, including rodents, dogs, nonhuman primates, and humans. Nevertheless, the precise neuro-chemical mechanisms underlying this drug-induced neurotoxicity remain unclear. This volume will serve as a useful source of information not only for neurochemists, but also for investigators from many other disciplines.
