Difference in Brain Densities Between Chronic Alcoholic and Normal Control Patients.
Adult, Alcoholism, Brain, Functional Laterality, Humans, Tomography.
The densities of the brains of 11 chronic alcoholics were compared with those of 11 age-matched normal control subjects. Densities were determined from the density numbers generated by computerized tomography at three levels of the brain-the highest level of the lateral ventricles and the next two higher levels-with adjustments made to control for possible artifacts in the data. The advantage of the dominant hemisphere over the nondominant hemisphere was lessened in alcoholics
