Description

The antiestrogen, tamoxifen (TMX), has been shown to function as a neuroprotectant against the nigrostriatal dopaminergic (NSDA) neurotoxin, methamphetamine (MA), within male mice. In the present report, we examined the effects of a combined infusion of TMX and MA within superfused striatal tissue fragments of male mice as an approach to understand some of the bases for TMX to function as a NSDA neuroprotectant within male mice. In Experiment 1, a coinfusion of TMX at 1, 10, or 100 pg/ml were all equally effective in increasing
