Chronic ethanol exposure and withdrawal in rats produce opposing effects on glutamate release in the basolateral amygdala from axons originating in subdivisions of the medial prefrontal cortex, chemogenetic inhibition attenuates the increase in anxiety-like behavior associated with ethanol withdrawal.
