The overt ethanol withdrawal syndrome is associated with a generalized increase in cerebral uptake of 2-deoxyglucose. Relatively high elevations of 2-deoxyglucose were observed in many structures associated with motor function, the mamillary body-anterior thalamus-cingulate cortex pathway, many thalamic nuclei, and the raphe. Overtly withdrawing rats had higher levels of 2-deoxyglucose than postwithdrawing animals that had been abstinent for 1-5 weeks in 96% of the gray areas evaluated… CONTINUE READING
