Abstract

This article presents the proceedings of a symposium presented at the International Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism 12th World Congress on Biomedical Alcohol Research, held in Heidelberg/Mannheim, Germany, from September 29 to October 2, 2004. The organizer and chairperson was Robert H. Purdy. The presentations were (1) Fetal ethanol-induced increase in brain levels of pregnenolone sulfate, by C. Fernando Valenzuela; (2) GABAergic neuroactive steroids after ethanol self-administration and relapse, by Patricia H. Janak; (3) Neuroactive steroid modulation of ethanol intake patterns in C57BL/6J mice, by Deborah A. Finn; (4) Role of neurosteroids in ethanol dependence and GABAA receptor plasticity, by Giovanni Biggio; and (5) Alcohol and neuroactive steroid interactions in the menstrual cycle, by Torbjörn Bäckström.
