We examined astrocyte and microglial reactivity in animals experiencing methamphetamine toxicity and in animals resistant to such toxicity. Animals experiencing toxicity showed activated microglia, whereas animals resistant to toxicity did not. Additionally, GFAP expression was similar whether an animal was experiencing toxicity or not, suggesting that astrocyte reactivity does not reflect acute METH-induced dopamine toxicity, whereas microglial reactivity does.
