For the third installment of this Annals series, we focus on the longstanding and substantial contributions of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and of investigators interested in alcoholism. While there are also many contributions that relate to other addictive substances, the recent anniversary of the founding of NIAAA, the ongoing discussions about how addiction research funding will be provided in the United States, the unique insights that alcoholism researchers have developed into modeling consequences in tissues such as liver, and the relative paucity of articles on alcoholism in prior Addiction Reviews volumes, all provide timeliness to this emphasis on alcohol research and NIAAA. Among the specific issues covered are: alcoholic liver disease exacerbated by malnutrition or infections; hippocampus, amygdala and stress and susceptibility to addiction; alcohol binge drinking; epigenetics of addiction; and the pharmacological enhancement of drug cue extinction learning.
