Neuropsychoimaging of Addiction and Related Conditions (NARC) Research Program
The Neuropsychoimaging of Addiction and Related Conditions (NARC) Research Program studies human brain function related to behavior, cognition, emotion and personality. Special emphasis is given to drug addiction (crack/cocaine, methamphetamine, alcohol), and other problem behaviors (aggression, intermittent explosive disorder). Comorbid psychopathology (depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, antisocial personality) is also of interest.
NARC has now reported differences between cocaine addicted individuals and healthy control subjects in the processing of monetary reward in several brain regions.Learn more
