Society for Neuroscience Honors Rita Z. Goldstein, PhD, with the Jacob P. Waletzky Award
Date:11/1/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 01, 2013

The Society for Neuroscience will present Rita Z. Goldstein, PhD, Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, with the Jacob P. Waletzky Award at the Society for Neuroscience's 43rd Annual Meeting, November 13 in San Diego.

The award, supported by The Waletzky Family, is given to a neuroscientist conducting ground-breaking addiction research. Recipients receive a $25,000 prize.

Dr. Goldstein is the first scientist to receive this award for neuroimaging research in humans. Until this year, the award was given to basic neuroscientists for studies conducted in animal, cellular and molecular models.

"We commend Dr. Goldstein on her prestigious award," said Larry Swanson, PhD, President of the Society for Neuroscience. "Her efforts will undoubtedly help to influence future work in the addiction arena, as well as in other disorders of impulsivity and drive."

Dr. Goldstein was selected for blazing a path, with studies on the theoretical model she devised together with Nora D. Volkow, MD, Director of the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) in 2002. The model is called the iRISA (Impaired Response Inhibition and Salience Attribution). The model postulates that drug-addicted individuals have a disproportionate bias towards their drug of choice at the expense of other potential rewards, including natural rewards such as food, with associated reductions in self-control.

Dr. Goldstein uses a variety of methods--spanning functional magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalography along with neuropsychological tools created specifically to measure the symptoms of iRISA in drug ad
