COSEFEX Study - Are social cognition and executive processes indicators of vulnerability to alcohol use disorders?

Published on 13 January 2021

As part of the COSEFEX study (Are social cognition and executive processes indicators of vulnerability to alcohol use disorders?), associating the University Hospital of Reims and the University of Reims Champagne Ardenne, a recruitment campaign is under way.

This study aims to understand the risk factors contributing to the development and maintenance of alcohol use disorder.

For this, it is necessary to compare patients with an alcohol use disorder to healthy subjects, as well as to first degree relatives of patients with an alcohol use disorder.

The study will be conducted with:

  • 40 patients with an alcohol use disorder.
  • 70 relatives of patients with alcohol use disorder (first degree family members: father, siblings).
  • 110 healthy volunteers aged between 18 and 60, without alcohol use disorder and without any other psychoactive substance use disorder.

After an initial telephone interview, if you agree and meet certain criteria, you will be contacted to participate in the study. This participation will include 2 visits of approximately 2 hours each, and then (if you wish) an MRI examination lasting approximately one hour. MRI is a non-invasive examination, and the study poses no risk to your health.

Compensation of €40 will be paid to you for your participation in visits 1 and 2 and an additional €30 for your participation in visit 3.
