Figure 2

Representative false-color (RGB) autoradiograms of [3H]RX821002 binding density in brain slices from adolescent males and females exposed to either saline or cocaine in utero. Areas of low binding density appear white to light purple, areas of moderate binding appear blue to yellow, and areas of high binding density appear dark red. Measurements were taken from hippocampus (stratum lacunosum-moleculare of CA1 near the hippocampal fissure, as approximately marked by a red oval), parietal cortex (layer II, as approximately marked by an orange rectangle), and amygdala (central nucleus, as approximately marked by a blue square).
