Rationale Exposure to intermittent social defeat stress elicits tently alters cocaine valuation and intensifies binge-like drug corticotropin releasing factor (CRF) release into the VTA and intake in a CRF-R1-dependent manner. Conversely, the per- induces long-term modulation of mesocorticolimbic dopa- sistent pattern of cocaine bingeing induced by social defeat mine activity in rats. These adaptations are associated with stress may suggest impaired inhibitory control, independent of an intense cocaine-taking phenotype, which is prevented by reward valuation.

Methods Male Long-Evans rats were microinjected into the Introduction VTA with CRF (50 or 500 ng/side), vehicle, or subjected to social defeat stress, intermittently over 10 days. Animals were Repeated exposure to stressful events is associated with an then trained to self-administer IV cocaine (FR5).
