Presence of ethanol-sensitive glycine receptors in medium spiny neurons in the mouse nucleus accumbens.


KEY POINTS The nucleus accumbens (nAc) is involved in addiction-related behaviour caused by several drugs of abuse, including alcohol. Glycine receptors (GlyRs) are potentiated by ethanol and they have been implicated in the regulation of accumbal dopamine levels. We investigated the presence of GlyR subunits in nAc and their modulation by ethanol in medium… (More)
