Imaging of Alcohol and Reward Seeking Behavior
This is a research study about the brain's reward centers and what they might tell us about the brain's reward system and the risk for developing alcoholism.
The purpose of this study is to determine how particular human brain reward regions and striatal dopamine are involved in alcohol seeking behaviors, separate from and uncontaminated by alcohol intoxication. This study will therefore help us to understand the physiological mechanisms of the motivated behaviors that drive maladaptive behavior in alcohol use disorders.
Participants will be paid for their participation.
