Recently, holographic techniques have been applied to Condensed Matter Systems (CMS) with strongly-coupled electrons. Einstein-Maxwell-Dilaton (EMD) theories provide an interesting setup for such endeavours, as they allow non-trivial, non-conformal Infra-Red fixed points, which are postulated to be Quantum Critical (QC) points describing the physics near extremality. First, we shall describe the black hole solutions of EMD theories and review earlier results on their transport coefficients. Then, we shall address the issue of how to set holography up for these theories, using ‘generalised’ dimensional reduction. Finally, we shall apply this to the previously mentionned QC points.
