  • EFFECTS OF PHENYLETHYLAMINE IN RHESUS-MONKEYS AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY Tinklenberg, J. R., Gillin, J. C., Murphy, G. M., Staub, R., WYATT, R. J. 1978; 135 (5): 576-578


    In controlled experiments rhesus monkeys that had received phenylethylamine (PEA) demonstrated behavior similar to that reported after the administration of amphetamines, except that tolerance to PEA did not develop. These findings are of psychiatric interest because PEA is found in the human body and is a specific substrate for type B MAO, which is found in decreased quantities in certain schizophrenic patients.
