Abstract

It is well known that most people who use psychoactive drugs started as teenagers. In spite of this, there has been little preclinical research on the effects of psychostimulants during adolescence. Recently, however, a number of laboratories have begun to focus on drug effects in adolescents as compared with adults. The data show that there are unique responses to drugs during this period of development. This review will focus on our current understanding of neurochemical and behavioral drug effects during adolescence.
