Abstract

Four physically healthy non-schizophrenic amphetamine abusers volunteered to ingest amphetamine in large doses and to cooperate with behavioral assessments, urine collections and to undergo lumbar punctures before and after dong so. The effects of administered amphetamine on behavior and on urine and cerebrospinal fluid levels of homovanillic acid (HVA), 5-hydroxy indoleacetic acid (5-HIAA), 3-methoxy-4-hydroxy-phenyl glycol (MHPG) and vanillylmandelic acid (VMA) are presented and discussed with regard to the findings of other investigators.
