- Inherent Sensitivity and Acquired Tolerance to the NMDA-Antagonist Ketamine is Associated with Alcohol Intake: A Nonhuman Primate (Macaca mulatta) Model
- As alcohol and ketamine are both N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists, our study investigates whether change in sensitivity to ketamine predicts future alcohol intake and how serotonin modulates tolerance to both agents in rhesus monkeys. Results showed that low serotonin activity predicts ketamine tolerance and acquired tolerance predicts subsequent alcohol consumption.
