PSYC 304  March 31 - Tolerance: The need to take increasingly larger doses of a drug in order to produce the same effect  initially produced by a much smaller dose o Metabolic tolerance: because the drug is degraded faster thus, the dose is not there anymore  (but this is mostly not the case) o Functional tolerance: your receptors are not as sensitive as they used to be thus, you need a  higher dosage to create the same effect. o Cross-tolerance: Tolerance of one drug results in a lessened response to another drug - The Story of Jean Morrison o He was taking lots of drugs, went to Paris, and died of overdose. So he went to Paris from  California   prof is saying the change of environment killed him. The new environment raised  his DA levels in his brain and him taking the same dosage of drugs killed him…it was an OD on  DA stimulation….weird.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
