|(Impulsive) Decision Making, Gambling|
One of the main research focuses of EMMA is the process of (impulsive) decision making and (pathological) gambling, as well as the role of forebrain neurocircuitry in this process.
It has been investigated under the ADHD-sythe project (2009-2012) and is currently under investigation under the NeuroGenMRI project (2011-2014), both led by Dr. W. Adriani for Italy. Check the PRECLINICAL goals achieved by "ADHD-sythe" project - See the CLINICAL goals of "NeuroGenMRI" project. A new project, sponsored and founded by the Italian Premier Ministry, is aimed to validate innovative animal models for pathological gambling and proneness to risky choices: check its goals and progresses through the tracking webpage ...

Interesting articles on mind and metabolism: the emerging field of "neuroeconomics" deals with neuroscience of social networking and decision making (read more, open-access article). EMMA recommends an interesting paper has been recently published on a 3W theory about how the mind formulates its "intentions" more in general.
Gambling and its (pre)clinical investigation was the topic of an Expert Workshop, held in Rome (IT) on 2012, march 5
