Overview: Techniques have been developed for defining brain circuitry by observing patterns of correlated brain activity that we believe can also be related to methods useful for tracing the brain connections. This one-year study will compare samples of cocaine dependent adults to healthy adults. This study will provide the basis for future studies.
