  1. Brain dopamine alterations in human cocaine users
    KARLEY LITTLE; Fiscal Year: 2006
    ..Goal #4 is to confirm these increases and determine if induction of related genes occurs in human cocaine users. Specific Aim # 4 is to test the hypotheses that COX-1, NHE-1 and related mRNA's are increased in dopamine neurons. ..
