Addiction is a state in which a state involves in a compulsive behavior, even when faced with negative values. This behavior is reinforcing, or satisfying, as we know. A major feature of addiction is the loss of control in warning intake of the addictive substance. The most recent research shows that the reward pathway may be even more important in the desire associated with addiction, compared to the reward itself. Scientists have educated a great deal about the biochemical, cellular, and molecular roots of addiction; it is clear that addiction is a disease of the brain. State that you will provide two examples of the contact between drugs that are addictive, their cellular objects in the brain, and the reward pathway.
• The action of heroin (morphine)
• Localization of opiate required sites within the brain and spinal cord
• Morphine binding within the reward pathway
• The action of cocaine
• Inhaling vs smoking cocaine: different addictive liabilities
• Localization of cocaine "binding sites"
