The addicted brain : why we abuse drugs, alcohol, and nicotine by Michael J Kuhar( Book )

20 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in English and Chinese and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addiction destroys lives. In The Addicted Brain, leading neuroscientist Michael Kuhar, Ph.D., explains how and why this happens–and presents advances in drug addiction treatment and prevention. Using breathtaking brain imagery and other research, Kuhar shows the powerful, long-term brain changes that drugs can cause, revealing why it can be so difficult for addicts to escape their grip. Discover why some people are far more susceptible to addiction than others as the author illuminates striking neural similarities between drugs and other pleasures potentially capable of causing abuse or addiction–including alcohol, gambling, sex, caffeine, and even Internet overuse. Kuhar concludes by outlining the 12 characteristics most often associated with successful drug addiction treatment. Authoritative and easy to understand, The Addicted Brain offers today's most up-to-date scientific explanation of addiction–and what addicts, their families, and society can do about it

The effects of drug abuse on the human nervous system by Bertha Madras( )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drug use and abuse continues to thrive in contemporary society worldwide and the instance and damage caused by addiction increases along with availability. The Effects of Drug Abuse on the Human Nervous System presents objective, state-of-the-art information on the impact of drug abuse on the human nervous system, with each chapter offering a specific focus on nicotine, alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, MDMA, sedative-hypnotics, and designer drugs. Other chapters provide a context for drug use, with overviews of use and consequences, epidemiology and risk factors, genetic

Methods in neurotransmitter receptor analysis by Henry I Yamamura( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pharmacological aspects of drug dependence : toward an integrated neurobehavioral approach( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together in one place the latest research from the areas of molcular biology, neurochemistry and behavior analysis of drug abuse and dependence. Further, the authors have attempted to integrate, wherever possible, the data from these various levels of analysis. The research reported points to the complexity of the phenomenon of abuse and dependence and clearly demonstrates that it is determined by a variety of variables from molecular biology and genetics through behavioral history. The complexity is shown, however, to be amenable to rigorous scientific analysis and our success to date gives reason to hope that this distressing public health problem can ultimately be brought under control. Each of the chapters is written by a leading researcher in the field

10 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drug addiction : research frontiers and treatment advances by Drug Abuse Research Society( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume brings together basic and clinical science to provide in-depth understanding and current knowledge concerning new conceptual insights into the CNS acting drugs and drugs of abuse and treatment of drug addiction." "Methamphetamine, MDMA, PMA and different solvents are the most widely abused drugs in the Europe, United States, Central America, South America and Asian Countries and their use has dramatically increased over the last two decades. These drugs of abuse are known to cause neurotoxicity in several species including not only rodents, dogs and nonhuman primates, but also humans. However, precise neurochemical mechanisms underlying this drug-induced neurotoxicity remain unclear." "This volume addresses the following: Role of Genomics, Proteomics and Metabonomics in Drug-induced Neurotoxicity; Drugs of Abuse and Medication Development; Molecular Biology and Free Radicals in Drugs of Abuse-induced neurotoxicity; Substituted Amphetamines-induced Neurochemical Changes and Relationship to Neurotoxicity; Drug of Abuse and Imaging Brain Structure and Function; and GHB/Volatile Solvent/Inhalant Neurotoxicity."--Jacket
