Newswise: FSU research: Ketamine could help men suffering from alcohol use disorder

FSU research: Ketamine could help men suffering from alcohol use disorder

Florida State University

Research from Florida State University is giving physicians a better understanding of ketamine, a potentially useful tool in treating depression that still has unanswered questions. A team of researchers working in the laboratory of Mohamed Kabbaj, a professor of Biomedical Sciences and Neuroscience in the College of Medicine, showed that ketamine can decrease alcohol consumption in male rats that previously had consumed high amounts of alcohol when given unrestricted access several times a week.

Food Trends 2020: Meal Kits, Convenience Store Nutrition and Drinkable Collagen

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

Most people think of collagen as a protein used for cosmetic purposes that you get in a jar, but prepare for drinkable collagen. If you think that’s interesting, try going online to order meal kits – full of just-the-right ingredients for the dishes you want to prepare. Those are a couple of the fearless forecasts from UF/IFAS faculty experts as they predict food trends for 2020 – a popular list now in its sixth straight year.

Newswise: Mechanism connects early binge drinking to adult behaviors

Mechanism connects early binge drinking to adult behaviors

University of Illinois at Chicago

Intermittent exposure to high levels of alcohol in adolescent animals leads to increased levels of microRNA-137 in the brains of adults; blocking the molecule helps to reverse or reduce the lasting effects of youth drinking, such as increased alcohol use and anxiety.

Cerebellum and cognition: Impact of co-use of alcohol and cigarettes

Research Society on Alcoholism

There is consistent evidence that having an alcohol use disorder is associated with abnormalities in the cerebellum, a structure attached to the bottom of the brain that is involved in coordinating posture and balance but also in supporting some cognitive functions. Cigarette smoking, which often co-occurs with alcohol use, has also been shown to impact brain structure and function, and co-use of these substances is purported to accelerate aging of the brain. A report published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research examines neuroimaging (MRI) data from 92 people in order to further investigate the impact of smoking and alcohol status on the volume of the cerebellum and related cognitive function.

Newswise: ‘Would You?’ WVU responds to hazing tragedy with awareness campaign

‘Would You?’ WVU responds to hazing tragedy with awareness campaign

West Virginia University

“Nolan, breathe for me, buddy.” It’s been five years since Nolan Burch, a freshman at West Virginia University, was unable to respond to that plea as he lay on a board at the Kappa Sigma house where he had participated in a hazing event held by unsanctioned fraternity that included chugging a bottle of bourbon. A day later, the 18-year-old was taken off life support, and his organs donated to four other individuals – one of whom is now a WVU student.
