    Department of Psychology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA
    Behav Brain Res 230:399-408. 2012
    ..For both phenotypes, amygdala opioid stimulation makes the individual's prepotent cue into a stronger motivational magnet at phasic moments triggered by a CS that predicts the reward UCS...
