    ..However, cocaine-dependent subjects without an alcohol disorder (N=12) also had lower GABA levels (1.04 mM/kg) than the comparison subjects (t [d.f.=30]=2.09, P=0.045), suggesting that cocaine dependence alone can decrease GABA levels...

  1. Naltrexone and alprazolam-induced fMRI changes
    CHRIS STREETER; Fiscal Year: 2005
    ..Pretreatment with naltrexone will correlate with a slower decrease in rCBV and less mood-enhancement than when alprazolam is given unopposed. ..
