Imbalances between neural reward and control networks can influence the trajectory of alcohol use disorders such that individuals for whom the ... http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/Preliminary_Functional_MRI_Results_From_a_Combined_StopSignal_AlcoholCue_/4972.html http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/Preliminary_Functional_MRI_Results_From_a_Combined_StopSignal_AlcoholCue_/4972.html Family History of Problem Drinking Is Associated With Less Sensitivity of Alcohol Demand to a Next-Day Responsibility Objective: Behavioral economic demand curves measure alcohol consumption as a function of price and may capture clinically relevant individual differences in alcohol-reinforcing efficacy. This study used a novel, behavioral-economic, hypothetical demand-curve paradigm to examine the association between family history of alcohol misuse and individual differences in ... http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/Family_History_of_Problem_Drinking_Is_Associated_With_Less_Sensitivity_of_A/4971.html http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/Family_History_of_Problem_Drinking_Is_Associated_With_Less_Sensitivity_of_A/4971.html Maladaptive Decision Making and Substance Use Outcomes in High-Risk Individuals: Preliminary Evidence for the Role of 5-HTTLPR Variation Objective: Individuals with multiple alcohol-dependent (AD) relatives are at increased risk for substance use disorders (SUDs). Prospective, longitudinal studies of high-risk (HR) individuals afford the opportunity to determine potential risk markers of SUDs. The current study assessed the effect of familial risk and genetic variation on Iowa ... http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/Maladaptive_Decision_Making_and_Substance_Use_Outcomes_in_HighRisk_Individ/4970.html http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/Maladaptive_Decision_Making_and_Substance_Use_Outcomes_in_HighRisk_Individ/4970.html Alcohol Consumption Mediates the Relationship Between ADH1B and DSM-IV Alcohol Use Disorder and Criteria Objective: A single nucleotide variation in the alcohol dehydrogenase 1B (ADH1B) gene, rs1229984, produces an ADH1B enzyme with faster acetaldehyde production. This protective variant is associated with lower alcohol consumption and lower risk for alcohol use disorders (AUDs). Based on the premise that faster ADH1B kinetics decreases alcohol consumption, ... http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/Alcohol_Consumption_Mediates_the_Relationship_Between_ADH1B_and_DSMIV_Alco/4969.html http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/Alcohol_Consumption_Mediates_the_Relationship_Between_ADH1B_and_DSMIV_Alco/4969.html General and Specific Predictors of Nicotine and Alcohol Dependence in Early Adulthood: Genetic and Environmental Influences Objective: This study builds on previous work delineating a hierarchical model of family environmental risk in relation to a hierarchical model of externalizing disorders (EXTs) by evaluating for gene–environment interplay in these relationships. The associations between parent–child relationship quality (conflict, bonding, and management) and substance-specific adolescent ... http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/General_and_Specific_Predictors_of_Nicotine_and_Alcohol_Dependence_in_Early/4968.html http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/General_and_Specific_Predictors_of_Nicotine_and_Alcohol_Dependence_in_Early/4968.html Youth Alcohol Brand Consumption and Exposure to Brand Advertising in Magazines [OPEN ACCESS] Objective: Recently published research has identified the alcohol brands most frequently consumed by underage youth.
