Research team shows 'bath salts' stimulant could be more addictive than meth (7/26/2013)
MDPV increased the average activity level of the animals.
But at higher-albeit still modest-doses, it produced repetitive behaviors similar to the tooth-grinding and compulsive skin-picking seen in human meth and MDPV users.
"One stereotyped behavior that we often observed was a rat repeatedly licking the clear plastic walls of its operant chamber-a behavior that was sometimes uninterruptable," said Aarde.
"One could say MDPV turned some rats into 'window lickers' of a sort."
Reports on human MDPV users suggest that the drug's behavioral effects can persist for lengthy periods after drug use stops, and Taffe and Aarde are now setting up studies of MDPV's long-term behavioral effects.
