A possible role of a cerebral energy gene in alcoholism

A. F. Ribeiro, Correia, D., Boerngen-Lacerda, R., and Brunialti-Godard, A. L., A possible role of a cerebral energy gene in alcoholism, vol. 11, pp. 404-411, 2012.

We examined a possible relationship between genes responsible for energy metabolism of the brain and addictive behavior in an animal model. We used non-inbred, Swiss mice exposed to a three-bottle free-choice model [water, 5% (v/v) ethanol, and 10% (v/v) ethanol] over a 16-week period, consisting of four phases: acquisition, withdrawal, reexposure, and quinine-adulteration.
