Project: Research project

Description

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alcohol acts as a potent reinforcer in humans and in rats, and the behaviors directly involved in alcohol use can be thought of as "goal-directed", involving two distinct phases: 1) the seeking or procurement of a particular resource (appetitive behaviors), and 2) the actual direct interactions with that resource (consummatory behaviors). This project utilizes an innovative behavioral model developed to separate the initial behavior required to obtain access to alcohol from the actual alcohol self-administration. Using this model, rats drink alcohol in the 1.0 g/kg range in
