Volunteers Needed for a Research Study to Image the Brain's Response to Alcohol and Alcohol Cues
The brain's response to seeing, smelling, or tasting alcohol an alcoholic drink may be important in determining a person's desire to drink. We are using Positron Emission Tomography (PET) to examine a brain chemical called dopamine in response to alcohol related pictures and odors, and to alcohol intoxication itself.
The study requires:
  • An examination of your sense of smell, drinking history, and family history of alcoholism (~1.5 hours).

  • Three different PET scanning sessions of brain activity on two different days.

  • Alcohol Intoxication on one or both days using intravenously administered alcohol.
These steps will be conducted on 3 different days at your convenience. You will receive $225.00 for completing the study.
If you are interested and:
  • Between the ages of 21 and 35, and physically healthy.

  • Have a family history of alcohol problems or alcoholism.

  • Drink alcohol.

  • Have no active allergies or colds that interfere with your sense of smell.

Hey, it's all good. I got paid $75 just to get innoculated for the flu and tetanus. Viva being the control group!
