Book Description

Drugs; Addiction; and the Brain (PDF) explores the cellular; molecular; and neurocircuitry systems in the brain that are responsible for drug addiction. Common neurobiological elements are emphasized that offer novel insights into how the brain facilitates the acute rewarding effects of drugs of abuse and how it alters during the transition from initial drug use to compulsive drug use and addiction. The ebook provides a thorough overview of the pathophysiology of the disease. The information delivered will be useful for drug abuse treatment providers; neuroscientists in the field of addiction; and undergraduate and postgraduate students. They are interested in learning the varied effects of drugs of abuse on the brain.

  • Introduction to basic neuropharmacology terms and concepts
  • Detailed review of extant work on the neurobiology of addiction
  • Actual data figures from original sources showing key concepts and findings
  • Introduction to many animal models used to study varied aspects of drug use.
  • Full-color circuitry diagrams of brain regions associated in each stage of the addiction cycle
