bstract—Most drugs of abuse increase dopamine (DA) in he nucleus accumbens (NAc), and do so every time as a harmacological response. Palatable food also releases acumbens-shell DA, but in naïve rats the effect can wane uring a long meal and disappears with repetition. Under elect dietary circumstances, sugar can have effects similar o a drug of abuse. Rats show signs of DA sensitization and pioid dependence when given intermittent access to surose, such as alterations in DA and mu-opioid… CONTINUE READING
