    Neurotensin System Study on Meth Effects

    Neurotensin System Study on Meth Effects

    Meth addiction is very serious, the effects caused from using methamphetamines not only causes physical harm to the meth user but causes harm to the community as well. A big portion of the mental and physical problems caused from abusing meth are due to dopamine changes in the brain. There aren't any medications that have been approved yet for the treatment of meth addiction.

    Because there isn't a medication for the treatment of meth addiction studies are being done examining the reactions of meth in the neurotensin system in the brain. The Neurotensin (NT) system can be found in the basal ganglia and studies are being done to see how meth reacts in this area of the brain when methamphetamines are self-administered.
