Abstract
Through selective breeding, rat lines exhibiting high and low alcohol drinking preference have been developed as useful animal models for st udying the neurobiological basis of alcohol-seeking behavior. The iden tified differences between lines in neurotransmitter functioning allow s the evaluation of receptor agonist/antagonist compounds that might b e efficacious in the treatment of alcohol craving and dependence.
