Dopamine increases in the nucleus accumbens after ethanol administration in rats, but the contributions of the core and shell subregions to this response are unclear. The goal of this study was to determine the effect of various doses of i.v. ethanol infusions on dopamine in these two subregions of the nucleus accumbens. Male Long-Evans rats were infused(More)
BACKGROUND Ethanol self-administration has been shown to increase dopamine in the nucleus accumbens; however, dopamine levels in the accumbal subregions (core, shell, and core-shell border) have not yet been measured separately in this paradigm. This study was designed to determine if dopamine responses during operant ethanol self-administration are similar(More)
