Dorsal hippocampal dopamine receptors are involved in mediating ethanol state-dependent memory.
Life Sci. 2007 Jan 02; 80(4):285-92.LS

Abstract

In the present study, the effects of bilateral injections of dopaminergic agents into the hippocampal CA1 regions (intra-CA1) on ethanol (EtOH) state-dependent memory were examined in mice. A single-trial step-down passive avoidance task was used for the assessment of memory retention in adult male NMRI mice. Pre-training intra-peritoneal (i.p.) administration of EtOH (0.25, 0.5 and 1 g/kg) dose dependently induced impairment of memory retention. Pre-test administration of EtOH (0.5 g/kg)-induced state-dependent retrieval of the memory acquired under pre-training EtOH (0.5 g/kg) influence. Intra-CA1 administration of the dopamine D(1) receptor agonist, SKF 38393 (0.5, 1 and 2 g/mouse) or the dopamine D(2) receptor agonist, quinpirole (0.25, 0.5 and 1 microg/mouse) alone cannot affect memory retention. While, pre-test intra-CA1 injection of SKF 38393 (2 microg/mouse, intra-CA1) or quinpirole (0.25, 0.5 and 1 microg/mouse, intra-CA1) improved pre-training EtOH (0.5 g/kg)-induced retrieval impairment. Moreover, pre-test administration of SKF 38393 (0.5, 1 and 2 microg/mouse, intra-CA1) or quinpirole (0.5 and 1 microg/mouse, intra-CA1) with an ineffective dose of EtOH (0.25 g/kg) significantly restored the retrieval and induced EtOH state-dependent memory. Furthermore, pre-training injection of the dopamine D(1) receptor antagonist, SCH 23390 (4 microg/mouse), but not the dopamine D(2) receptor antagonist, sulpiride, into the CA1 regions suppressed the learning of a single-trial passive avoidance task. Pre-test intra-CA1 injection of SCH 23390 (2 and 4 microg/mouse, intra-CA1) or sulpiride (2.5 and 5 microg/mouse, intra-CA1) 5 min before the administration of EtOH (0.5 g/kg, i.p.) dose dependently inhibited EtOH state-dependent memory. These findings implicate the involvement of a dorsal hippocampal dopaminergic mechanism in EtOH state-dependent memory and also it can be concluded that there may be a cross-state dependency between EtOH and dopamine.
