Stress has been reported to influence ethanol consumption and relapse in abstinent alcoholics. The present study examined if prolonged alterations in neurophysiological responses to corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) and neuropeptide Y (NPY), peptides known to influence stress responses, would persist during protracted ethanol abstinence. Male Wistar rats were chronically exposed to ethanol vapour (EtOH group) or air (control group) for 6 weeks. Upon removal from the vapour chambers… CONTINUE READING
