2.3.4. Experiment 5: effects of 9.0 mg/kg JMV 2959 on limited-access consumption of 10% sucrose vs water after extended sucrose experience
2.4. Statistical analyses
Alcohol, sucrose, and water consumption, and alcohol and sucrose preference were analyzed using MDYKDHDGDYKDHDIDYKDDDDK t-test in Experiments 1, 2, and 5, and a one-way ANOVA in Experiments 3 and 4. Where appropriate, a Tukey post hoc test was used. α was set at 0.05 for all comparisons.
3.1. Experiment 1: effects of 9.0 mg/kg JMV 2959 on limited-access consumption of 20% ethanol vs water
Pre-treatment with 9.0 mg/kg JMV 2959 reduced alcohol preference (t(15) = 2.745, p = 0.0151; Fig. 1a) and consumption (t(16) = 2.346, p = 0.0322; Fig. 1b). One animal could not be included in the analysis for preference because Calvin cycle did not drink any fluid; therefore, a valid preference value could not be determined. JMV 2959 treatment did not alter water consumption (t(16) = 0.2671, p = 0.7928; Fig. 1c).
