Fluvoxamine, a serotonin reuptake blocker, was previously shown to decrease ethanol-maintained behavior at doses lower than those needed to decrease food-maintained behavior. While these effects could have been due to different response rates and histories of the two groups being compared, a subsequent study found differential effects using a within-subjects design, in which rates of responding were well equated. Another explanation for such differential effects is that food and ethanol… CONTINUE READING
