By studying different animals, we can investigate the biological causes of cravings. From parasites to monkeys, many species all show a drive for ethanol. While mice are usually used to study an organisms&apos ethanol, it is easier to find the biological causes of such behavior in fruit flies.
Model systems provide the opportunity to characterize the biology underlying cue-induced cravings. Memory for ethanol associated cues are demonstrated in a wide range of species, from nematodes to primates. Although rodent models are the predominant model organism used to study cue-induced ethanol seeking, Drosophila melanogaster offer distinct advantages in defining the biology of cue-induced ethanol seeking.
With topics including biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, physics, and social sciences, Verste contains simplified research from topics in many scientific journals.
Currently, Verste has over 120 readers from around the world. We're not only making an impact in the scientific community, but also bringing technical education to the reach of everyone.
With over 60 contributors simplifying and editing research papers, we strive to make our simplifications to the upmost quality. We are growing faster than ever.
Verste is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to making research more accessible by creating simplified research papers. As such, we depend on the generous efforts by our contributors to make Verste possible. If you would like to help us out, please fill out the short application form found below! As a contributor, you'll be able to simplify any research papers you'd like, including papers that you've read before, or papers that you're tackling from scratch. Additionally, you'll be contributing to the scientific community, making research more accessible for those without previous experiences in this topic.
