Mice exposed to cocaine showed a metabolic activity decrease mainly at Striatum (SUVSt: 1.11±0.08) and Amygdala (SUVAMY: 1.74±0.13) when compared to controls (saline group, SUVSt: 1.90±0.28 and SUVAMY: 3.00±0.38). In opposition, tracer uptake increase for mice exposed to quercetin (SUVSt: 2.03±0.14 and SUVAMY: 4.08±0.40). Once cocaine was administered followed to quercetin, its effects were mitigated by the latter (SUVSt: 2.03±0.07 and SUVAMY: 3.46±0.33). Figures 1 and 2 illustrate 18F-FDG uptake for both St and AMY, respectively, according to the stimuli (saline, cocaine, quercetin or cocaine followed by quercetin).
