Abstract: The widespread consumption of alcohol and the great socioeconomic impact of alcohol abuse and addiction have contributed to the extensive investigations of this substance. Despite great efforts there is still uncertainty concerning how alcohol exerts its effects and the mechanisms behind the transition from consumption to addiction. However, substantial evidence proposes involvement of the mesolimbic dopamine system in the rewarding and reinforcing effects of the drug. Alcohol is known to affect... more
