Although progress has been made identifying the neural areas underlying the primary reinforcing effects of ethanol, few studies have examined the neural areas mediating ethanol-induced conditioned effects. Previous work using the conditioned place preference (CPP) procedure implicates the ventral tegmental area (VTA) (Bechtholt and Cunningham, 2005), but the downstream neural areas modulating the conditioned rewarding effects of ethanol have not been identified. Although the nucleus accumbens… CONTINUE READING
