Analyzing Differences in Reward Pathway Activity and Hormone Fluctuation Between Heavy Alcohol Users and Controls

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Alcohol Use Disorder is a widespread problem in the U.S., associated with health risks and behavioral changes. Females are at a greater risk of relapse and escalate to alcohol dependence more quickly than males. However, female addiction research is historically lacking. Previous research has shown that hormones influence reward processing and impact addiction. Therefore, this study evaluates hormone fluctuation and fMRI imaging relationships to provide more personalized addiction treatment.
