Four Neurobiological and genetic studies on alcohol

Mittwoch 3. März 2010 von htm

Anterior Cingulate Cortex Activity May Represent A Neurobiological Risk For Alcohol Dependence
Previous research has found that activation of the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) is associated with risk factors for alcohol use disorders – such as low alcohol effects and positive alcohol expectations – among adolescents.
Genome-Wide Study Of Alcohol Dependence Points To Chromosome 11
Alcohol dependence (AD) is a complex disease for which both genetic and environmental factors affect susceptibility. Previous research had identified several genes associated with AD through linkage analysis or candidate-gene approaches.
Increasing Dissolved Oxygen Concentrations In Alcohol May Reduce Negative Side Effects
Oxygen for ethanol oxidation is supplied through breathing, the stomach, and the skin. There is a great deal of genetic and environmental variability in the pharmacokinetics of alcohol absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination.
Use Of Gene Networks Instead Of Individual Genes To Examine Alcohol Use Disorders
Alcohol use disorders (AUDs) are influenced by multiple genetic, environmental and behavioral factors, which makes it difficult to find individual genetic markers to help identify those at risk of developing AUDs.
