Social stress-escalated intermittent alcohol drinking: modulation by CRF-R1 in the ventral tegmental area and accumbal dopamine in mice

Abstract

Excessive alcohol (EtOH) drinking is difficult to model in animals despite the extensive human literature demonstrating that stress increases EtOH consumption. The current experiments show escalations in voluntary EtOH drinking caused by a history of social defeat stress and intermittent access to EtOH in C57BL/6J mice compared to non-stressed mice given… (More)
