Alcohol addiction is a difficult condition to treat. Tess den Uyl investigates a new treatment that combines brain stimulation with cognitive training. She uses a specific form of computer training called cognitive bias modification. This involves showing patients images of alcoholic beverages and having push away the pictures with a joystick, which retrains automatic inclinations to alcohol. This training is combined with a brain stimulation technique that has previously been found to reduce craving for different substances.
