Ethanol is known to increase the release of dopamine in the nucleus accumbens. The question of whether this is a result of a direct or an indirect effect of ethanol on mesolimbic dopaminergic neurons was examined by investigating the extracellular levels of dopamine and its metabolites in the nucleus accumbens of alcohol-preferring AA (Alko Alcohol) and alcohol-avoiding ANA (Alko Non-Alcohol) rats after application of ethanol locally into either the nucleus accumbens or the ventral tegmental… CONTINUE READING
