Self-Activation and Nicotine Dependence

common.study.values.description

Self-activation in Individuals With and Without Nicotine Dependence

The purpose of this study is to see if a non-medication intervention can increase motivation and reward processing to non-drug reward cues (for example, a picture of one's favorite food) in individuals with and without nicotine dependence by observing brain activity using electroencephalography (EEG) and/or functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The investigators hypothesize that learning to increase brain activity to non-drug cues may improve reward responses and motivation to non-drug cues, and for individuals who smoke, may eventually result in improved smoking cessation outcomes.

Device - Neurofeedback (from fMRI and/or EEG)

During part of the task, a feedback display (e.g., thermometer stimulus) will be used to display the average brain activity for each participant. This signal will be acquired ~ every 1 second during the neurofeedback session and will dynamically update to reflect ongoing changes in brain activity. This continuously updated display is the primary feedback mechanism provided to the participant.
