What is the purpose of this trial?
This study is designed to look at the relationship between brain glucose utilization, neurotransmission (e.g., glutamate, also known as the main excitatory amino-acid neurotransmitter in the brain), and synaptic density. This relationship will be explored in the brain's prefrontal cortex, an area important in decision-making and impulsivity.
