- Neurobiology of addiction: insight from neurochemical imagingNina B L Urban
Department of Psychiatry, Division of Substance Abuse, Columbia University, New York, NY 10032, USA
Psychiatr Clin North Am 35:521-41. 2012..Further studies are needed to understand fully how the interplay of various neurotransmitter systems contributes to addiction and to ultimately help to develop more effective treatment approaches...
- Sustained recreational use of ecstasy is associated with altered pre and postsynaptic markers of serotonin transmission in neocortical areas: a PET study with [¹¹C]DASB and [¹¹C]MDL 100907Nina Bl Urban
Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University, New York State Psychiatric Institute, New York, NY 10032, USA
Neuropsychopharmacology 37:1465-73. 2012..Alterations in mood, cognition, and impulse control associated with these changes might contribute to sustain MDMA use. The reversibility of these changes upon abstinence remains to be firmly established...

- Imaging human reward processing with positron emission tomography and functional magnetic resonance imagingNina B L Urban
Department of Psychiatry at Columbia University, New York, NY 10032, USA
Psychopharmacology (Berl) 221:67-77. 2012..The lack of correlation at the ROI level may be due to the small magnitude of release or to the particular dependence of BOLD on glutamatergic signaling...
- Neurochemical imaging in schizophreniaNina Urban
Department of Psychiatry, New York State Psychiatric Institute, Columbia University, New York, NY 10032, USA
Curr Top Behav Neurosci 4:215-42. 2010..As more imaging tools become available, this knowledge will expand and will lead to better detection of disease, as well as better therapeutic approaches...
- Sex differences in striatal dopamine release in young adults after oral alcohol challenge: a positron emission tomography imaging study with [¹¹C]racloprideNina B L Urban
Department of Psychiatry at New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University, New York, New York 10032, USA
Biol Psychiatry 68:689-96. 2010..We used a positron emission tomography paradigm with the D2/3 radiotracer [¹¹C]raclopride and an alcohol challenge to examine the magnitude of alcohol-induced dopamine release and compare it between young men and women...
- Striatal and extrastriatal dopamine D2/D3 receptors in schizophrenia evaluated with [18F]fallypride positron emission tomographyLawrence S Kegeles
Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and New York State Psychiatric Institute, New York 10032, USA
Biol Psychiatry 68:634-41. 2010..We used positron emission tomography with [(18)F]fallypride to evaluate D(2)/D(3) receptors in both striatal and extrastriatal regions in schizophrenia...

Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, NY 10032, USA
J Psychopharmacol 26:794-805. 2012..We conclude that upregulation of D1 receptors in schizophrenia is related to the illness itself and may be corrected and normalized by chronic antipsychotic treatment...
