The present study was designed to assess whether voluntary ethanol intake would stimulate locomotor activity in Sardinian alcohol-preferring (sP) rats, selectively bred for high ethanol preference and consumption. Rats were habituated to a) consume either water alone (water-consuming rats) or ethanol (10%, v/v) as free choice together with water (ethanol-consuming rats… CONTINUE READING
