The effect of transcranial electrical stimulation (TES) was found to inhibit alcohol intake in rats used to ethanol, whereas in those unused to ethanol the alcohol intake increased after the TES. The TES effect seems to be connected with the difference in opioid system conditions in animals with different spontaneous alcohol motivation.
