TITLE: Functional Neuroimaging in Addiction

SPEAKER: Zsuzsa Meszaros, M.D.

DESCRIPTION: Over the past few decades, advances in the field of cognitive neurosciences and neuroimaging techniques have improved our understanding of the neuroplastic, developmental and substance-induced changes related to addiction. Despite these scientific advances, clinical use of functional neuroimaging has lagged significantly. Patients and health care providers are fascinated by the promise of these advances, and expect psychiatrists to provide objective diagnosis and prognosis based on functional neuroimaging studies. We will be exploring the future promise of functional imaging biomarkers to guide the diagnosis and treatment of addictive disorders. This presentation attempts to bridge the science-to-practice gap by bringing everyday addiction psychiatric practice closer to the field of neurosciences.
