Abstract
Chronic morphine administration causes a 40% reduction of 3H-labeled 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) binding in the brain stems of dependent rats, with little or no effect in other brain regions. Binding of [3H]dihydroalprenolol, 2,2,6-[3H]dimethoxyphenoxy-(ethylaminomethyl)benzodioxan, and [3H]spiroperidol is not affected by this treatment. The specificity of the reduction in 5-HT receptor number in the brain stem is discussed in terms of persistent activation of central
