Cocaine Activation Discriminates Dopaminergic Projections by Temporal Response: An fMRI Study in Rat

John J.A. Marota, Joseph B. Mandeville, Robert M. Weisskoff, Michael A. Moskowitz, Bruce R. Rosen, Barry E. Kosofsky
2000 NeuroImage  
We applied a sensitive new functional magnetic resonance imaging technique to identify the pattern and determinants of cocaine-induced brain activation in drug-naive rats.  ...  At doses greater than 0.1 mg/kg iv, cocaine produced robust activation throughout cortex with the largest magnitude increase in frontal neocortex.  ...  Despite rats being both drug naive and anesthetized, the similarity in activation patterns implies that some components of cocaineinduced brain activation are a direct consequence of dopaminergic mechanisms  ...
