Alcohol Addiction: A Systems-Oriented Approach
“It is inherently impossible to explain alcoholism by pursuing only the
analytical study of alcohol interactions with the nervous system
at ever finer levels of molecular structure and function”
(Harold Kalant, 2010, Addiction).
Following Aristotle’s idea of “The whole is greater than the sum
of its parts“, with our here presented consortium of a systems-oriented
approach to alcohol addiction we aim to integrate all systems levels
from genes to molecules to neuronal ensembles to large neuronal
networks and finally to behavior. Our mission is to better understand
the ethiology of alcohol addiction, to define risk factors in young
people for alcohol-use disorders later in life, and to provide better
treatments to our patients.
