Sullivan, E. V., & Pfefferbaum, A. (2014). Human imaging studies of brain circuitry disrupted by alcoholism. In A. B. C. Noronha, C. Cui, R. A. Harris & J. C. Crabbe (Eds.), Neurobiology of Alcohol Dependence (pp. 131-151). San Diego: Academic Press.
Recent scientific advances have provided substantial information on the brain circuits and pathways relevant to various aspects of dependence. Neurobiology of Alcohol Dependence highlights the most recent data at the molecular, cellular, neurocircuitry, and behavioral levels, fostering an understanding how neuroplasticity and neuroadaptation occur, and how different neural pathways and neurocircuits contribute to dependence.
