Dopamine System Characterization of Rhesus Monkeys Exposed to Moderate Dose Alcohol in Utero
Rhesus monkeys exposed in utero to moderate levels of alcohol daily (maternal dose of 0.6g/kg 95% alcohol, equivalent to 1-2 drinks in humans) show a variety of behavioral and motor deficiencies compared to control groups. To characterize the dopamine system of these animals in vivo, PET methods to access pre- and post-synaptic dopamine function were investigated.
