Positron emission tomography (PET) studies have consistently shown increased brain dopamine (DA) synthesis and enhanced d-amphetamine-induced DA release in patients with schizophrenia. Repeated administration of d-amphetamine leads to an increased subjective and behavioral drug-response. This effect, termed "sensitization", is paralleled by an increase in dopamine release to levels akin to ...
