However, acute injection with 0. Acute injection with SKF at 0. It appears that altered probability discounting behavior in testosterone-treated rats is due to both decreased D1 and D2 receptor function.
Anabolic-androgenic steroids AAS increase sensitivity to uncertainty by inhibition of dopamine D1 and D2 receptors. Original Investigation First Online: Background Anabolic-androgenic steroid abuse is implicated in maladaptive behaviors such as impaired cognition in humans. Methods Adolescent male Long-Evans rats were treated chronically with high-dose testosterone 7.
Conclusions It appears that altered probability discounting behavior in testosterone-treated rats is due to both decreased D1 and D2 receptor function.
