This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Alcohol is one of the world's most common addictive substances, with about 2 billion individuals worldwide consuming it in one form or another and 3 million annual deaths that are associated with alcohol misuse. Alcohol alters a variety of neurological processes, from molecular biology to cognition. Moreover, addiction to alcohol can lead to numerous other health concerns and damage virtually every organ system in the body, making diagnosis and treatment of individuals addicted to alcohol of critical importance. Effective treatments are contingent on a thorough understanding of the neuroscience of ethyl alcohol and the mechanisms of addiction to the substance in the brain. Neuroscience of Alcohol: Mechanisms and Treatment presents the fundamental information necessary for a thorough understanding of the neurobiological underpinnings of alcohol addiction and its effects on the brain in a single source. Offering thorough coverage of all aspects of alcohol research, treatment, and prevention, and containing contributions from internationally recognized experts, the book provides students, early-career researchers, and investigators at all levels with a fundamental introduction to all aspects of alcohol misuse. Integrates cutting-edge research on the pharmacological, cellular, and molecular aspects of alcohol use along with its effects on neurobiological function Discusses alcohol use as a component of dual-use and poly addictions, and outlines numerous screening and treatment strategies for alcohol misuse Covers both physical and psychological effects of alcohol use and withdrawal to provide fully formed view of alcohol dependency and its effects
