“From non-chronic to chronic addiction: what changes in the brain?”

“The main aim of this project is to study the processes involved in the development of chronic drug seeking behavior in alcohol dependence and pathological gambling. We will investigate neurobiological differences in addicted humans in different stages of their addiction period (chronicity) with a variety of neuroimaging techniques such as structural and functional MRI, diffusion MRI (DTI) and functional connectivity. Our aim is to translate knowledge derived from animal research to advance our understanding of addiction in humans in order to improve treatment allocation and outcome.”
