Neurobiological Responses in Alcoholism and Early Trauma

Study Description

Neurobiological Responses in Alcoholism and Early Trauma

Early trauma is associated with clinical challenges in treatment alcoholism, including complex clinical symptoms and higher relapse rates. To better understand this phenomena, this study will examine the neurobiological mechanisms underlying alcoholism, early trauma, and high relapse risk. The current study utilizes a multimodal neuroimaging technique combining brain and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) measures in a prospective clinical outcome design.
