Abstract

Long-term, high levels of exposure to ethanol is believed to lead to a hypersensitive mesolimbic dopamine system. This has been, in part, demonstrated through increased neural activity being observed in heavy drinkers' reward pathways following the presentation of alcohol-related stimuli. This anticipatory reaction to alcohol associates is believed to represent an expectation of a drinking event. Alcohol expectancy, as it is known, is said to facilitate both conscious and subconscious cravings for alcohol, where heavy drinkers covertly exposed to alcohol-related stimuli are reported to drink more than those who have not been exposed.
