New Eye-tracking Technology for Addiction Research

Alcohol is the most commonly used addictive substance in the United States, according to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD). One in every 12 adults, 17.6 million people, suffer from alcohol abuse or dependence. Several million more engage in risky, binge drinking patterns that could lead to alcohol problems. Looking into the reasons individuals become addicted to alcohol is why Dr. Mark Fillmore came to the University of Kentucky 17 years ago.

Fillmore’s research is a combination of psychology, behavioral neuroscience, biology and pharmacology. Looking at the differing ways individuals react to drugs of abuse, whether the drug be alcohol, marijuana, or some other drug of abuse, may give clues to why some people become dependent on a drug over time.
