Immunostained serotonergic fibers are decreased in selected brain regions of alcohol-preferring rats.

Abstract

The levels of serotonin (5-HT) and 5-hydroxyindole-acetic acid (5-HIAA) are decreased in the hippocampus, nucleus accumbens, and cortex of selectively bred alcohol-preferring (P) rats, compared with the alcohol-nonpreferring (NP) rats. In this study, we have confirmed these findings by immunocytochemistry and quantitative image analysis which indicates that… (More)
