Brief description In pilot studies, we have found that specific genes are modulated by long-term alcohol intake in a discrete part of the brain that drives habitual behaviours. We will now repeat these studies in post-mortem brain tissue from human alcoholics and age-matched controls. In addition, we will further characterise the functional consequences of long-term alcohol intake within this specific brain region and test new approaches to reduce the urge to consume alcohol.
