    ..Escalated consumption is largely controlled by neurocircuitry that is important for reward and affect, such as the ventral tegmental area (VTA) and the dorsal raphé nucleus (DRN)...

    ..Stress experiences have been shown to be a risk factor for alcohol abuse in humans; however, a reliable mouse model using episodic social stress has yet to be developed...

    ..Neither alcohol nor CP-154,526 alone affected 5-HT release in the mPFC. The present results suggest the DRN as a critical site for CRF-R1 to modulate alcohol-heightened aggression via action on the serotonergic DRN-PFC pathway. ..
