Alcohol Hits You When It Is Hard: Intoxication, Task Difficulty, and Theta Brain Oscillations

ConclusionsThe spatiotemporal theta profile across the 2 tasks supports the concept of a rostrocaudal activity gradient in the medial prefrontal cortex that is modulated by task difficulty, with the dAC as the key node in the network subserving cognitive control. Conflict‐related theta power was selectively reduced by alcohol only under the more difficult task which is indicative of the alcohol?

Craving Mediates Stress in Predicting Lapse During Alcohol Dependence Treatment

ConclusionsAmong treatment seeking, alcohol‐dependent patients, craving mediated the relationship between stress and lapse. The effect was not moderated by depressed mood or anticraving medication.
