Cortical and Amygdalar Neuronal Ensembles in Alcohol Seeking, Drinking and Withdrawal


The George lab published a new invited review in collaboration with Dr. Bruce Hope at the National Institute on Drugs of Abuse (NIDA) on the identification of specific neuronal ensembles responsible for different aspects of alcohol use disorder.

This review is part of a special issue of Neuropharmacology edited by Dr. Adron R. Harris (University of Texas at Austin) and Dr. George F, Koob (NIH/NIAAA) on the Neuropharmacology of Alcoholism.
