    Shawn K Acheson
    Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University Medical Center, United States
    Neurosci Lett 487:411-4. 2011
    ..We suggest that the role of thigmotaxis be carefully evaluated in future neurodevelopmental studies of spatial learning, especially those investigating the endocannabinoid system...

    Aaron M White
    Department of Psychiatry, Duke University Medical Center, Box 3374, Durham, NC 27710, USA
    Subst Abus 25:53-9. 2004
    ..These findings add to a slowly growing literature regarding adolescent substance abuse treatment, and may help clinicians identify marijuana-dependent adolescents at greater risk of relapse or noncompliance...

    Rebekah L Fleming
    Durham Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Durham, NC 27705, USA
    Alcohol 45:577-83. 2011
    ..These findings suggest that regulation of ambient GABA by GABA transporters may contribute to the difference in ethanol sensitivity between adolescents and adults...
