Lower regional grey matter in alcohol use disorders: evidence from a voxel-based meta-analysis
A meta-analysis of voxel-based GM studies in AUD patients published before Jan 2021 found increasing GM atrophy in the right insula associated with the longer mean abstinence duration of the samples in the studies in the analysis.
Salience network structural integrity predicts executive impairment in alcohol use disorders
The multiple cognitive and neurological impairments observed in AUDs might reflect a specific executive deficit associated with the selective damage of a salience-based neural mechanism enhancing access to cognitive resources required for controlled cognition and behaviour.
Meta-analysis of grey matter changes and their behavioral characterization in patients with alcohol use disorder
The results suggest that GM reduction in AUD could disrupt network communication responsible for the neurocognitive impairments associated with high chronic alcohol consumption.
Default mode network and frontolimbic gray matter abnormalities in patients with borderline personality disorder: A voxel-based meta-analysis
It is suggested that BPD patients have significantly GM abnormalities in the default mode network and frontolimbic circuit.
Executive Impairment in Alcohol Use Disorder Reflects Structural Changes in Large-Scale Brain Networks: A Joint Independent Component Analysis on Gray-Matter and White-Matter Features
The role of multivariate data integration as a valuable approach revealing superordinate hallmarks of neural changes related to cognition in neurological and psychiatric populations is highlighted.
Impact of substance use disorder on gray matter volume in schizophrenia
A coordinate-based meta-analysis of white matter alterations in patients with alcohol use disorder
The spatial convergence of the reported findings on WM alterations in AUD could to some extent explain the deteriorations in motor, cognitive, affective, and perceptual functions seen in AUD.
Common abnormality of gray matter integrity in substance use disorder and obsessive‐compulsive disorder: A comparative voxel‐based meta‐analysis
The functional characterization as a key hub in the cognitive control network and casual interactions with the striatum suggest that deficits in inhibitory control mechanisms may promote compulsivity and loss of control that characterize both disorders.


A widespread distinct pattern of cerebral atrophy in patients with alcohol addiction revealed by voxel-based morphometry
Evidence is provided that alcohol addiction is associated with altered density of GM and WM of specific brain regions and Voxel-based morphometry is an effective tool for in vivo investigation of cerebral atrophy in patients with alcohol addiction.
Voxel-wise meta-analysis of grey matter changes in obsessive-compulsive disorder.
The results support a dorsal prefrontal-striatal model of the disorder and raise the question of whether functional alterations in other brain regions commonly associated with OCD, such as the orbitofrontal cortex, may reflect secondary compensatory strategies.
Brain Morphometry and Cognitive Performance in Detoxified Alcohol-Dependents with Preserved Psychosocial Functioning
The extent of structural brain damage and related cognitive deficits has been little described in alcohol-dependent individuals with preserved social functioning. Thus, we investigated the
Increased Ventral Striatal Volume in College-Aged Binge Drinkers
The findings stand in contrast to the lower ventral striatal volume previously observed in more severe forms of alcohol use disorders, suggesting that college-age binge drinkers may represent a distinct population from those groups.
