The prevalence rate of methamphetamine use disorders in Southeast Asian countries is on a dramatic rise recent years, constituting a significant public health concern and economic burden. Early detection and intervention is very important to the treatment on addiction. The presentation will introduce the neurocognitive profiles of the individuals with methamphetamine use disorders during their abstinence periods, combined with self-report, questionnaire, cognitive task and psychophysiological and EEG recording technologies. Our focus is to measure the cue reactivity when the addicts are exposed to different kinds of virtual drug cues and contexts, aims to identify the biobehavioral markers for early detection of methamphetamine addiction, and develop early intervention methods by modifying the addictive memory during its reconsolidation phase with virtual reality technology to reduce the cue reactivity and craving.
