Scientific summary

I mainly conduct neuropsychological and neuroimaging studies to investigate the effects of chronic alcohol consumption on brain and cognition. The goals are 1) to understand the pathophysiology of alcohol-related brain dysfunction, 2) to reduce alcohol relapse by protecting neuropsychological abilities during withdrawal and promoting cognitive recovery after drinking cessation and 3) to prevent the development of alcohol-related neurological complications.
