Brian Piper, School of Pharmacy, has been notified of acceptance of a research article for the Developmental Psychobiology Journal. The article, Adolescent MDMA Exposure Diminishes the Physiological and Neurotoxic Consequences of MDMA Binge in Female Rats, is the result of a collaborative study with colleagues from the University of Massachusetts, C. Hederson and J. Meyer. The study focused on ecstasy (MDMA) which is a popular recreational drug. Most animal studies of MDMA are conducted with adult males. This study examined the physiological, behavioral, and neurochemical effects of MDMA in adolescent female rats. Some similarities and also some key differences in the short and long-term effects of MDMA were identified between males and females.
