Neurobiological and neuropsychological approaches to investigate the potential mechanism of action of chess as an add-on therapy (chess based - cognitive remediation treatment, CB-CRT) to reduce cognitive deficits in individuals with alcohol use disorder (AUD).
The study aims to investigate the potential mechanism of action of chess as a "chess based - cognitive remediation treatment, CB-CRT" to reduce cognitive deficits in individuals with alcohol use disorder (AUD) seeking treatment using neurobiological and neuropsychological approaches. Furthermore, we will assess whether this chess intervention has a generalized positive effect on short-term abstinence. Interestingly, the functional domains and associated underlying neuronal networks observed to be affected in individuals with AUD overlap significantly with those that could be strengthened by chess-based cognitive training or formal chess. Specifically, strengthening of cortical control regions (dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, DLPFC) and brain areas relevant for decision-making (orbitofrontal cortex, OFC) could prevent future relapse. Therefore, chess as an add-on therapy to complement other standard treatments of AUD could lead to improved therapeutic outcomes.

A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.
