“Sometimes I think I need a spare heart to feel all the things I feel.” — Sanober Khan I felt her agony and loneliness as if it were my own. Even as I write that sentence, my eyes well up and heaviness fills my heart. Then, I’m reminded to apply the advice I give others. My mom was a special person, a sensitive soul just like me. Actually, I’m so much like she was, yet so different. One of the differences between us is that I had an opportunity to observe her life’s challenges. I saw her challenges reflected within myself and made a conscious choice to find healthy ways to cope. You see,...

Abstract A variety of genetic approaches, including twin studies, linkage studies, and candidate gene studies, has established a firm genetic basis for addiction. However, there has been difficulty identifying the precise genes that underlie addiction liability using these approaches. This situation became especially clear in genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of addiction. Moreover, the results of GWAS brought into clarity many of the shortcomings of those early genetic approaches. GWAS studies stripped away those preconceived notions, examining genes that would not previously have been considered in the stud...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe addictions field lacks a coherent framework for strategies to reduce harm arising from the consumption of alcohol. We need to be able to clarify the mechanisms by which key strategies operate, and encompass aetiological factors that do not involve drinking.Recent FindingsWe outline population and high-risk individual strategies focused on supply- and demand-side factors and propose a system laid out in two tables, for classifying consumption-focused and non-consumption-focused countermeasures.SummarySome countermeasures belong in more than one cell, reflecting more than one underlying mechanism...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis paper integrates recent developments in the areas of excessive eating and addictive behavior, reviewing shared and unique features with respect to topography, etiological mechanisms/risk factors, comorbidity, and related adverse consequences/correlates.Recent FindingsEmerging literature is converging to suggest a high degree of overlap in terms of eating and addictive behavior, including common risk factors and involvement of brain reward pathways. Behavioral phenotypes involving putative addictive elements include binge eating, food addiction, nocturnal eating, grazing, and emotional eating. ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review provides an overview of recent findings relating to the role of Pavlovian conditioning in food cue reactivity, including its application to overeating and weight loss interventions.Recent FindingsBoth in the laboratory and in real life, cue-elicited appetitive reactivity (e.g., eating desires) can be easily learned, but (long-term) extinction is more difficult. New findings suggest impaired appetitive learning in obesity, which might be causally related to overeating. The clinical analogue of extinction —cue exposure therapy—effectively reduces cue-elicited cravings and over...
