Clinical usefulness of the Iowa Gambling Task in severe alcohol-use disorders: Link with relapse and cognitive-physiological deficits.

Summary of "Clinical usefulness of the Iowa Gambling Task in severe alcohol-use disorders: Link with relapse and cognitive-physiological deficits."

Decision-making impairments have been repeatedly evaluated in severe alcohol use disorders (SAUD) using the Iowa Gambling Task (IGT). The IGT, capitalizing on strong theoretical background and ecological significance, allowed identifying large-scale deficits in this population and is now a standard decision-making assessment in therapeutic settings. However, the clinical usefulness of the IGT, particularly regarding its ability to predict relapse and its link with key cognitive-physiological deficits, remains to be clarified.
