Ethanol-seeking behavior is expressed directly through an extended amygdala to midbrain neural circuit.

Abstract

Abstinent alcohol-dependent individuals experience an enduring sensitivity to cue-induced craving and relapse to drinking. There is considerable evidence indicating that structures within the midbrain and extended amygdala are involved in this process.
