Drug Alcohol Depend 145:156-67. 2014..Despite extensive research on gender differences in addiction, there are relatively few published reports comparing treatment outcomes for women versus men based on evidence-based treatments evaluated in randomized clinical trials...
- Neural correlates of impulsivity in healthy males and females with family histories of alcoholismElise E DeVito
Department of Psychiatry, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT 06510, USA
Neuropsychopharmacology 38:1854-63. 2013..These findings are consistent with increased risk for addiction among FHP individuals being conferred through disrupted function within neural systems important for impulse control...
- A preliminary study of the neural effects of behavioral therapy for substance use disordersElise E DeVito
Department of Psychiatry, Division of Substance Abuse, Yale University School of Medicine, Connecticut Mental Health Center, United States
Drug Alcohol Depend 122:228-35. 2012..Disruptions to aspects of impulse control and attention have been hypothesized to contribute to the development and maintenance of addiction; moreover, alterations in these processes may underlie responses to treatment...

Department of Psychiatry, Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA
Neuropsychopharmacology 39:2288-98. 2014..Clinically, results suggest that treatment development efforts that focus on enhancing cognitive control in addition to abstinence may improve treatment outcomes in cannabis dependence. ..
