Figure 3

(a) Statistical map in the sagittal (a) and coronal (b) views illustrating the striatal response to beer relative to Gatorade taste [ΔBPND>0] of [11C]raclopride in male drinkers (n=49). The color bar indexes the t-statistic at voxels in which DA levels were higher in the beer condition relative to the Gatorade condition. The anatomical right ventral striatum search volume is outlined in blue; voxel-wise display threshold, P<0.01, uncorrected.
