Intravenous Alcohol Administration Using BrAc Method in Healthy Subjects With and Without a Family History of Alcoholism
What is the purpose of this trial?
The proposed study is the first to explore the contribution of brain glutamate systems, a major target of ethanol in the brain, to the vulnerability to develop alcoholism. This study may lead to an enhanced understanding of the underlying neurobiological mechanism in high risk individuals that may lead to the transition from moderate to excessive use of alcohol.
