In the news: Brain imaging research on smoking and decision-making

The science website PsyPost recently highlighted findings authored by Michael Amlung published in the journal Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging.

Amlung, who is associate director for training of the Cofrin Logan Center for Addiction Research and Treatment and associate professor of applied behavioral science at KU, and colleagues conducted a study of 41 adults seeking to stop smoking to determine factors that were more likely to predict relapse and continued cigarette use following smoking cessation treatment. The study used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to explore neural aspects of decision-making.
