Trial Purpose and Description
The purpose of this research study is to measure synaptic density in the brain comparing individuals with cocaine use disorder to healthy controls.
One group will have current Cocaine Use Disorder, the other group will be Healthy Controls
- Age 21-60 years
- Physically healthy by medical history, physical, neurological, ECG and laboratory examinations
- For females, a negative serum pregnancy test
- For CUD: DSM-5 criteria for Cocaine Use Disorder and positive urine toxicology showing recent use
- For HC: Negative urine toxicology
- DSM-5 criteria for other substance use disorders (e.g., alcohol, opiates, sedative hypnotics), except for nicotine
- A primary DSM-5 Axis I major psychiatric disorder (e.g., schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, etc.) as determined by the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-5 (SCID-5)
- A history of significant and/or uncontrolled medical or neurological illness
- Current use of psychotropic and/or potentially psychoactive prescription medications
- Medical contraindications to MRI procedure
