During the 12th annual NCRG Conference on Gambling and Addiction, researchers presented more than 37 posters that showcased the latest studies on gambling disorders and responsible gaming. The posters included research such as a study of young adults that explored the connection between measures of problematic gambling behavior and impulsivity, and research that looked for associations of computer game involvement and problem gambling behavior among online players.
The lead author from the 2011 NCRG Conference Outstanding Poster award-winning research team is Dr. Iman Parhami, a postdoctoral research fellow in the department of psychiatry at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and a member of the UCLA Gambling Studies program.
