New commentary on "Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 signaling and appetitive Pavlovian behavior: implications for the treatment of addiction"

Check out Jocelyn’s commentary on recent work in Neuropsychopharmacology from Nadia Chaudhri’s lab (“Context and topography determine the role of basolateral amygdala metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 in appetitive Pavlovian responding”). Khoo et al. investigated the role of type 5 metabotropic glutamate receptors in Pavlovian conditioned behavior, systemically (throughout the brain) and locally in the basolateral amygdala and nucleus accumbens. Jocelyn discusses their results and the implications they have for the treatment of addiction. The original article can be found at this link and Jocelyn’s commentary can be found here.
