GABA-B receptor function in alcohol dependence

Abstinent alcohol-dependent volunteers wanted for a study investigating brain receptors in alcohol addiction. You will receive a medication called baclofen, or a placebo, and have a brain scan two separate days.

We are looking for male abstinent alcohol dependent volunteers between the ages of 21 and 65 who:

  • Are abstinent from alcohol for a minimum of 4 weeks
  • Are usually fit and well
  • Have no history of addiction to any drug except alcohol
  • Are not claustrophobic
  • Are available for a screening visit and two 8 hour study days over a period of approximately 4 weeks

You will be compensated £140 for completing the study plus travelling expenses. If you are interested in volunteering you can contact the research team by email
