Does a Ketogenic Dietary Supplement Reduce Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms in Humans?

Neuroimaging studies have shown that acute alcohol administration decreases glucose metabolism in the human brain, which was initially thought to reflect decreased brain function. However, subsequent studies showed that even low doses of alcohol, with minimal behavioral effects, also decreased baseline brain glucose metabolism and further. This led to the …

Deciphering the Role of Oxytocin in Motivation: an fMRI Study. Part II

Oxytocin is a well-known social and reproductive hormone demonstrated to have a variety of prosocial effects in humans including enhancing trust and generosity, improving positive communication, increasing eye gaze, and reducing anxiety. Oxytocin is hypothesized to facilitate social behaviors via its modulation of motivational networks. With this study, the investigators …


Ketamine Alcohol (in Treatment-Resistant Depression)

Objective Glutamate-based medications including the glutamate modulator ketamine result in rapid, robust and sustained (typically up to one week) antidepressant effects in randomized controlled trials in treatment-refractory unipolar and bipolar depression. Previous work by the investigators' group has demonstrated that a family history of alcohol dependence predicts a more robust …


Brain Inflammation and Function in Alcoholism

The abuse of high doses of alcohol is associated with cognitive impairment that in extreme cases can result in dementia. However, the mechanisms underlying the neurotoxic effects of alcohol to the human brain are poorly understood. Here we test the hypothesis that alcohol-induced neuroinflammation contributes to its neurotoxic effects in …
