Social zeitgebers and biological rhythms. A unified approach to understanding the etiology of depression.
It is suggested that a disruption of social rhythms, which may result in instability in biological rhythms, could be responsible for triggering the onset of a major depressive episode in vulnerable individuals.
Effects of corticotropin-releasing factor and growth hormone-releasing factor on sleep and activity in rats.
Electroencephalographic and behavioral findings seen following CRF and GRF are consistent with the behaviors frequently correlated with the known circadian timing of the release of corticosteroids and growth hormone during the sleep-waking cycle in rat and human.

The data indicate that there are innate differences in the NPY-I in the brain between selectively bred rats with high and low alcohol preference, and support the notion that NPY agonists that would enhance NPY function in the amygdala might be useful for the treatment of anxiety and alcoholism.
Age-related differences in the blood alcohol levels of Wistar rats
Addictions biology: haplotype-based analysis for 130 candidate genes on a single array.
Arrays of haplotype-tagged candidate genes, such as this addictions-focused array, represent a cost-effective approach to generate high-quality SNP genotyping data useful for the haplotypes-based analysis of panels of genes such as these 130 genes of interest to alcohol and addictions researchers.

A multidisciplinary approach to the study of FAS hopefully will lead to a more unified concept of the disorder and perhaps indicate specific areas of vulnerability.

Effects of age on delta and REM sleep parameters.

Polysomnographic and spectral sleep EEG in primary alcoholics: an interaction between alcohol dependence and African-American ethnicity.

African-American alcoholic patients showed more severe sleep abnormalities than Euro-American alcoholics, and the interaction between alcohol dependence and ethnicity uniquely contributed to prolonged sleep latency, loss of delta sleep, and short rapid eye movement (REM) latency.
