Introduction Recent studies support the association between addiction and the progressive alteration of cortical excitability, particularly focussing on the effect of chronic assumption of substance of abuse over the prefrontal cortex through the use of both cerebral stimulation and electroencephalo-graphic techniques [1] In particular, compulsive drug use(More)
Controlled trials in clinical psychopharmacology may fail to provide reliable information about the benefit of treatment for the patient when considered in a real-life setting rather than as a part of a well-defined sampling procedure. Previously, we applied the mathematical model of an artificial neural network (ANN) to a pool of clinical information(More)
