Acute ethanol treatment prevents endocannabinoid-mediated long-lasting disinhibition of striatal output.

Abstract

Recent research has suggested that the neuronal circuit adaptations elicited by drugs of abuse share common features with traditional learning models, and that drugs of abuse cause long-term changes in behavior by altering synaptic function and plasticity. Especially, the endocannabinoid (eCB) system appears to be involved in the neuronal circuitry… (More)
