FMRI of N-acetylcysteine
Addictive Behaviors | Mental Health & Behavioral Research
What is the purpose of this trial?
You are invited to participate in a research study designed to look at whether N-acetylcysteine (NAC), an over-the-counter dietary supplement which may reduce craving for cocaine, influences how the brain responds during processes such as performance of behavioral tasks and emotional processing. This research study will use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to measure changes in the flow of blood through the brain during performance of a behavioral task and while viewing pictures. You are invited to participate in this study because it is our understanding that you currently receive methadone treatment at the APT Foundation and have a problem controlling cocaine use.
