The effects of ethanol on brain-stimulation reward (BSR) were investigated in rats orally self-administering ethanol. Electrodes were stereotaxically implanted in the medial forebrain bundle (MFB) of male F-344 rats. A rate free threshold procedure was used. Animals demonstrated significant threshold-lowering effects after considerable ethanol self-administration experience. To elucidate the significance of the contingent nature of the route of administration in the threshold-lowering effects… CONTINUE READING
