In several neurobiological dependency theories, alcohol dependence is viewed as a disorder comprising a combination of a hypersensitive reward/motivation network and a failing cognitive control network. This imbalance between reward and control network causes ‘craving’ and weakened cognitive control. Jochem Jansen assesses whether behavioural and neural differences in emotional and cognitive functioning exists between alcohol dependent patients and healthy controls.
