    ..Furthermore, these results confirm past findings that dependent rats consume more alcohol than nondependent controls well into abstinence following extended periods of alcohol vapor exposure. ..

    ..Gamma-aminobutyric acid neurons in the CeA likely constitute a major point of convergence for neuromodulator systems recruited during the transition to alcohol dependence. ..

    ..Therefore, brain CRF(1)-receptor systems are important in the regulation of dependence-induced alcohol consumption, whereas brain opioid systems are important in the regulation of basal alcohol consumption by rats. ..
